Careful with those Flickr images in your Graphic Design work

Check out this article
about a photographer who posts his work on Flickr, and a huge advertising agency that is using Flickr to find photography for their design work. The image in question in this case was never even used in an ad, only in an internal comp for an ad, but the photographer is claiming that the image was stolen from him and that the agency owes him for the commercial use of the image. What do you think that means for your use of a Flickr image in the work that you do? (Thanks to Suzanne Salzano for finding the story)
