Flickr and Creative Commons

Since I licensed most of my photos on Flickr under a Creative Commons licence, I've had one used in an online news story, and just now I've received an email from a TV company (Banner Caswell) who want to use one of my photos in a forthcoming show (this one, for use in a show about colour blindness1.)

Am I just lucky, or do the rest of you Flickr-using lot get things like this quite often, too?

1 I don't even know how they found that particular photo. It's not as if it's tagged "traffic lights", or "colours", or whatever...
