The Liberals are at it again. Using other peoples work for their own gain.
Today a fundraising email went out from the LPC to help raise money for Ignatieff's Do-over Tour 2010. In the email they make note of and publish the famous copyrighted picture of Stephen Harper at the Calgary Stampede dressed as a cowboy.

Small problem. The picture that the Liberals are using overtly for financial gain is a copyrighted photo taken by Mikael Kjellstrom and originally published in The Calgary Herald July 9, 2005.
Did they seek permission and pay for the rights to this picture? I don't have the answer, although I will try to find out later today, but if the Liberals record on using other peoples copyrights is anything to go on, I doubt they did.
I should note that the photo in the LPC email is not attributed or identified as being from the Herald, Canwest, or taken by Mikael Kjellstrom.
