In what appears to be a small miracle of truly inept thievery, both the Labour party and the Conservative party have published the above Audi Quattro image on the eve of deciding the future of photographic copyright. The Digital Economy Bill proceeds to a Second Reading in the House of Commons on Tuesday 6th April. This is likely to be all the consideration it receives before getting dumped into the Wash-Up, the Parliamentary equivalent of a dodgy breakers yard.
The trouble is that either one or both political parties are highly unlikely to have obtained permission from the rights owner of the base image before grafting David Cameron's head onto the body of "Ashes to Ashes" star Philip Glenister in this BBC PR photo for the series.
Infringing copyright, if that is what they have done here, will be seized upon with rabid glee by the filesharing/Open Rights/Pirate Party fretards, as well as us lot who've known all along that Government doesn't really have a clue about photographic copyright, licensing, or what it's doing with S43.
