Re: In general, this approach sounds like a good idea.

One problem that no one has dealt with. I have a set of photos from a professional photographer complete with watermark. The photographer has given his clients permission for non-commercial use of the photos in writing. Now if I post one of the photos online on my non-commercial page/site, say FB, I have permission to do so. However, FB has no idea if I have been granted permission to do so. More specifically for the shysters how would anyone know a priori what permissions I have granted? The current regime removes the host from having to play guessing games over copyrighted as to what permissions have been granted to me.
