Is this really a problem, or are some professional photographers just put out because their pictures not showing up on Wikipedia? I hadn't noticed the pictures on Wikipedia sucking, and all my pictures have been licensed such that Wikipedia could use them (though I didn't think of Wikipedia when I chose the license) since I started using flickr, years ago.

Speaking of the license, I think this statement is wrong:
"Wikipedia runs only pictures with the most permissive Creative Commons license, which allows anyone to use an image, for commercial purposes or not, as long as the photographer is credited."
I don't think the most permissive CC license requires even attribution.
