Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) CEO Responds to a Tweet and Makes SpaceX Images Public

Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO, Elon Musk, has heed to mounting pressure from campaigners who have been asking him to follow NASA’s footsteps and release images from SpaceX under public domain. SpaceX was on the spotlight on releasing a batch of 100 photos that were under a Creative Commons License, meaning they could only be used with a proper attribution.

Photos under Creative Commons still have rights reserved to them and cannot be used for any commercial purposes, something that seems to have angered some people. When the Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA executive announced the release on Twitter. He was met with resentment and questioned why he didn’t just make them public. As it turns out, Musk does read his Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) mentions.

The executive responded to the request consequently making the photos public, allowing for downloads and building on them without any restrictions. The unravelling of the whole interaction is a clear highlight of how Twitter can connect big names to synonymous internet users. The whole incidence happened in under an hour an indication of Musk willingness to listen to people views and respond to them accordingly.

Photos were initially released under a creative common license, which allowed people to download them and use them as they wished as long as they properly credited SpaceX. Images taken from space especially by NASA are overwhelmingly in the public domain, normally classified as ‘US government works’ meaning anyone may have access to them without any restrictions.

SpaceX is not a government agency so they own the copyright of anything they create meaning they can embed restrictions as they find suitable. Just because they operate on behalf of NASA does not mean the copyright of their images, is owned by the government. Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) chief decision to change the photos to full public domain means they can now be reproduced, created to other derivative works, as well as distributed digitally.
