Oh, good lord.


  1. You know, I know I’ve seen that woman someplace. NOT in a…oh, right, Wikipedia. Of course. I wonder if anyone asked that woman for a release, before that image was put in the PD?

    Not to mention…oh, never mind.

    1. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Elder_native_Alaskan_woman_1979_FWS.jpg

      “This image or recording is the work of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee, taken or made as part of that person’s official duties. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image is in the public domain. ”

      Presumably the subject of the photo consented to the photo in 1979 and the PD comes from it being a gov’t work.

      If a photographer shows up and says “I’m from the federal government and I’m here to photograph you!”, RUN! Or your face may end up here on a lousy book cover.
