    Reposting images can always result in use issues.  If you want to repost any
    image, ask the owner for permission.  What is different about SeeSat?

    But then reposting the images could result in copyright 
    infringement.  So we should probably also enforce that all images 
    posted have one of the creative commons licenses.  In fact, why 
    not say all links to images must only point to wikicommons.  
    wikicommons stores photos for free and is the sister site to 
    wikipedia and is used for all of the pictures found in wikipedia.
    
    wikicommons has several great licesnses to choose from e.g. 
    "anyone can use for non-commercial purposes as long as original 
    author is credited".
    
    Here's an example with a completely open license:
