I was thinking a few days ago that I'd love to have a print of Royce Hall up on my wall. I did some searching online, and about the only decent one you can find is $80. It got me thinking: I'm sure, amongst all the lawyers and south campus types, there have to be at least a few people here who are good with a camera. It would be great to have a high-resolution pic of Royce Hall that the photographer is willing to share. Not even a professional photographer, necessarily - just a good picture. The more I thought about it, I would imagine people could share pix of other parts of campus as well. If you're willing to post a link to a great picture of any part of campus you're willing to share with your fellow BN denizens, please do.

You can also use copyleft, which wikipedia defines here as
...a play on the word copyright to describe the practice of using copyright law to offer the right to distribute copies and modified versions of a work and requiring that the same rights be preserved in modified versions of the work. In other words, copyleft is a general method for making a program (or other work) free (libre), and requiring all modified and extended versions of the program to be free as well. This free does not necessarily mean free of cost (gratis), but free as in freely available to be modified.
Copyleft is a form of licensing and can be used to maintain copyright conditions for works such as computer software, documents, and art. In general, copyright law is used by an author to prohibit others from reproducing, adapting, or distributing copies of the author's work. In contrast, under copyleft, an author may give every person who receives a copy of a work permission to reproduce, adapt or distribute it and require that any resulting copies or adaptations are also bound by the same licensing agreement.
