Seattle Traveller, my photos, copyright, and CC license

The "Seattle Traveller" just used one of my photos on their site here.

I am a bit annoyed. My photos are licensed "CC-Attribution-Noncommercial", which means that to reuse one, you have to attribute it to me, and its not automatically licensed for commercial use. Now, if someone wants to use one commercially, all one has to do is ask, and I will probably say yes. But they didn't ask.

Also, they attributed the photo to "flickr" instead of to me, and they are keeping a local copy of the image file, so that their viewership doesn't add to my Flickr stats.

I've left some comments, we will see if they respond. If they don't, then I will escalate.
