You would have no problems limiting access to those files. However you have to understand that you cannot limit reuse of those files if they are licensed using a Creative Commons license. If a member of your community decided to download those images and post them on Flickr or another platform it would be impossible to use copyright arguments to stop them.

A Creative Commons license gives permission for everyone in the world to use the work under the conditions of the license. The bare minimum of these conditions is that you give attribution, but they all allow for non-commercial distribution (e.g. placing them on Flickr).

if you are looking for a more local forum to discuss this I recommend contacting CC NZ: http://creativecommons.org.nz/ <http://creativecommons.org.nz/>
