Now, with the new Creative Commons licensing option on Picasa Web Albums, you can change the usage terms on some or all of your images from "all rights reserved" to "some rights reserved" and apply one of six CC licenses. For example, you might choose to allow others to use your images as long as they give you attribution, or you can enable use of your images as long as they're not re-mixed into derivative works or used for commercial purposes.

Of course, you still retain complete ownership and control over your own images--and if you do not want to allow any kind of re-use, you don't have to. By default, we assume that photos you upload to Picasa Web Albums are "all rights reserved" by you (i.e., standard copyright).
