    Yahoo has been accused of censorship on its popular photo website Flickr, in a row that has highlighted the issue of copyright in the online age.
    Earlier this month photographer Rebekka Gudleifsdóttir discovered that seven of her pictures were reportedly being sold by a UK-based online gallery.

    She raised the issue on Flickr but a photo and comments were deleted.

    Yahoo, which had no involvement in the row over the sale of the photos, has now apologised for its "mistake".

    According to Ms Gudleifsdóttir, online gallery Only Dreemin sold 60 prints of seven of her photos, for more than £2,500, without her consent.

    No-one from gallery Online Dreemin was available for comment.

    Ms Gudleifsdóttir owns the copyright to all of her photos on Flickr and the website clearly states that people cannot use them without permission.
