Stop43.org.uk stopped Commercial Orphan Works Exploitation in the UK Digital Economy Bill Clause 43






BBC posts story perfectly illustrating misrepresentation

Headlined Artist's impression causes copyright blunder, the story describes how a design company breached the copyright of dozens of photographers by incorporating elements of their copyright work, without permission, into a visualisation of a planned city-centre development.

The computer-generated artistic impression was commissioned by Stoke-on-Trent City Council “...for the East West Centre team to give residents an idea of what the new leisure and retail complex will look like", and shows the likes of Jude Law and Barack Obama shopping, among many other “celebrities”.

Whereas none of these prominent people might themselves object to shopping at the new Centre, they might well have good reasons not to publicly promote it. In other words, this picture is likely to
misrepresent their views

A welcome to the future to all of them, if they fail to help prevent Clause 43 of the Digital Economy Bill from becoming law.
