The BBC have been very naughty
« on: May 15, 2008, 11:23:25 PM »
Last year I entered a photo competition on the BBC Nottingham website. I sent several pics in in different categories. However, due to all that Blue Peter misnamed cat nonsense the comp was suspended in July and, as it seemed like nobody really had the stomach for doing the work it was quietly abandoned.

Imagine my surprise therefore to find that, despite not bothering with the comp, they have gone on to turn one of my entries (along with those from several others) into a 'desktop calendar' and offering it as a free download with no mention of copyright. The rules of the comp required you to allow the beeb to use the entry pic on their website but, originally, if you were one of the winners you would provide a further hi res pic to be printed for an exhibition and used in the desktop calendar. To me that would be a separate permission and anyway, I see my original greement for their use as being conditional on it being a competition entry to be judged in good faith. No comp, no permission. And they did clearly state that copyright remains with the photographer.

The page is HERE and mine is the traffic trails one for September. If you entered the same comp I'd recommend that you have a look in case they've used yours as well.

Just had an email from them today saying they've pulled the calendar pending an enquiry. Watch this space...
