Linking Back To Flickr When Posting Flickr Hosted Image Elsewhere.

Norm-Hamilton says:

The information I've found states, "Pages on other web sites that display content hosted on Flickr must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr."

My question is this:

Is the criteria met if the photo itself is linked back to Flickr?
eg. If the reader clicks the photo on the other site they'll be taken back to its origin on Flickr.

If you use the embed link that is displayed when you click on the share icon will always satisfy the criteria for linking back.
