Astronaut: A Flickr generated project

Thanks to both Infosthetics and Avoision for this. Avoision has used Flickr’s API search functionality to populate the lyrics of a song. He’s created this project called Astronaut, it’s innovative as it is not just a widget, it’s someone actually creating content that will never be the same everytime you watch it as each time the Flash file is loaded, new images are randomly pulled from Flickr use keywords in the song as trigger points.

I suppose the difficult question is whether this breaches copyright, privacy and permission or whether it is seen as more of a collaboration using creative commons?
