License for a Lifetime #edtech

I saw an interesting tweet from Vicki Davis today regarding a new tool that allows to permanently and legally license Creative Commons images. That tool is ImageStamper.  Currently it only works with Flickr Creative Commons licensed images.  And basically what it does is create a stamp (as the name suggests) proving that the license existed when you grabbed it.  So even if the owner changes the license at a later date, you have proof that you obtained it under the license originally provided.  A very interesting concept indeed.  ImageStamper has some interesting potential.
