Turns out, this is fine, providing the people in the photo knew they were being photographed.
Here’s what to do:
1. upload photo to Wikimedia Commons. Select that you have the permission to share the photo (you took them).
2. You can choose how you wish to share the photo. Commons will default to ShareAlike, which is probably what you want to do.
A couple of questions came up during our last class. Here are answers.
1. You can use UO theses: not all books are online either, and someone could
request the thesis through interlibrary loan.
2. In terms of permissions, for Russ, you have to get permission from SCUA and from the Russ estate. Linda Long is working on that last part.
For Tiptree, you’d have to get SCUA’s permission (as property rights holder) and the permission of Jeff Smith.
