Flickr commercial API?

I applied for a commercial Flickr API because I have an site with ads were I want to show Flickr photos that are related to the content.

I got this answer:

"Flickr may not be the right service for you to integrate
with. Flickr is a personal photo sharing site, not a source
for stock photography. Rights to all photos on Flickr are
owned by our users, and you would need to get their
individual approval before using their photos on your site."

I do not really understand why I got this answer. Many other sites use Flickr photos with ads ( I tried to explain this and applied a second time, but got the same answer.

Can anyone comment this?

Re: Flickr commercial API?

recommend phpFlickr,
phpFlickr is a class written by Dan Coulter in PHP4 to act as a wrapper for Flickr's API. Methods process the response XML and return a friendly array of data to make development simple and intuitive.
