Thomas posted this image to be used free of charge by anybody who could need a picture of a bread roll for their blog. The background is that a blogger was sued for 6.000 € for an alleged copyright infringement. A photo of a bread roll in the blog was apparently copied from a recipe web site which seems to evaluate their home made photos higher than their recipes.

If you ask me, 6000 € is a lot of money, both for a bread roll and for illegal use of a photo.
