March 20, 2005: Yahoo Acquires Photo Site Flickr
2005– Yahoo acquires Ludicorp and the popular photo sharing site Flickr. No details were released on this purchase. On Yahoo’s blog they outline that Flickr will continue to run as-is, while Yahoo Photos will incorporate some of the ideals into it’s site. The biggest issue from the deal was that Ludicorp was based in Vancouver, therefore when the data transfered to Yahoo servers the week of June 25th, it became subject to US federal law.
