The Telegraph & EU Referendum

The Telegraph isn't happy with EU Referendum over breaches of copyright. They want £70 for every use of image. Does Iain Dale have a licensing agreement? I'm pretty sure I don't. Perhaps this blog does. And this one. And this one. And this one.

Or is the Telegraph Group just gunning for EU Referendum because the blog has been critical of the newspaper's output?

If they really want to start playing silly buggers with not-for-profit bloggers I'll stop buying the paper, and advise others not to either.

On the strength of this I will stop the Hezbollagraph too.

The last two editors have seen very great decline anyway.

Who was the editor before the current one? Charles Moore was the last savvy editor with high editorial standards.

I don't even bother to read all the papers' leaders and columns any more because they are so empty and most of them lack style and verve. And I certainly don't regard the paper as a voice of authority any longer.

Frankly, when they didn't publish a single Danish Mo cartoon, my respect for them went whooshing down the drain. The French,Germans, Spanish, Jordanians(!) and Mexicans published them. But not the Brits. All that talk about our press being the freest in the world! No. The most self-censored in a climate of lunatic political correctness, aka thought fascism, in the world. And they allowed it to happen. They never spoke up.

Very sloppy google links finding. Post something in date if you are going to use them as ammunition in your discussion.

Is that the best you can do Frank?

Are you seriously suggesting that the blogs mentioned have all permanently stopped using pictures from the Telegraph?
