Image Rights and Wrongs

Paul McCartney and Heather Mills This has to be the most bizarre advert I’ve ever seen online. Presumably neither of them has given permission for this, which makes it all the more odd as it appears on a well-respected U.S. website.

The advert links to a UK-based consumer website, which is of no relevance to either Paul McCartney or Heather Mills – it’s just attention-grabbing. I hope they have good lawyers.

P.S. The word ‘abuse’ flashes in the advert, just for effect.

    Bizarre! By the way, hope all is well, Chris. Haven’t checked in for a while.

  2. Yeah, until yesterday I managed to go a week without blogging – I tried to get a guest in to write some sporty stuff but they were knocked down by the usual affliction suffered by sports journalists, laziness…

    Not a good weekend to be an England rugger fan. Just mailed my dad and bro who were in Cardiff! Hopefully the wound is not too fresh.

  4. Luckily I was in England for the weekend, but there’s still a few posters about with the score on today. It was nice of us to deny them the wooden spoon, really!
