"Royalty-free" does not mean "free"

The entry for the Corbis image library was described as "royalty-free" and tagged with a free license. I've amended this to a not-free license. "Royalty-free" generally means that you only have to pay a fixed fee to use a specific work within your own work, regardless of how many copies you make of it. When Corbis says you can use their images "any way you want", they mean you can use their images any way you want, after you pay for them. And they mean that you can use the images any way you want, not anyone else; that is, you can't relicense the images to other people. So the images are neither free as in beer nor free as in freedom. —Joe 19:16, 27 March 2007 (EDT)

Could it be that this site only works within USA?

That's entirely possible. But the site is definitely not broken for everyone if that is what you are wondering. I am in the USA and I can currently access the site just fine. —Joe 00:16, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Solved! Well, almost... was a browser issue, I was using Opera... works fine (if you have a 'normal'—whatever that means—browser) --Xavi 19:52, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
