Green Party taking liberties?

via the tipline, a reader emails:

GOTGreens

Hi,

I noticed the poster at Armageddon at the weekend, the Greens using Game of Thrones in their advertising campaign.

Considering the lack of HBO, Game of Thrones or any logo other than the Greens’ I’m suspicious that they haven’t bothered to obtain permission to use the imagery or tag line, which would be typical of their hypocrisy when it comes to rights. 

I have forwarded this to the copyright breach email address at HBO and will let you know if I hear anything back.

In the meantime it might be fun to poke Russel Norman with a stick, as it appears that integrity and fairness is quite important to him.

It is hugely ironic that they appear to have stolen the property rights of HBO when the poster is talking about stealing the property rights of power companies.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
