Facebook photo lift costs Wales on Sunday £260

Wales on Sunday has been forced to pay the British National Party £259.99 for breach of copyright after taking a picture of a BNP candidate from his Facebook page, Holdthefrontpage reeports.

According to the BNP the picture was used without permission.

While £260 won’t have broken the bank for the Welsh national, the pay-off will have involved a lot of legal hassle and serves as a cautionary tale.

The photo was used to illustrate a story about Roger Phillips, the BNP’s deputy organiser for West Wales, who was said to be selling ‘racist’ golliwog football merchandise.
