CalBuzz has a lead item in today’s website entitled “Lies, Damn Lies: Howard Jarvis and Small Biz ‘Poll”. However, the picture of Jarvis that they use to punctuate their accusations includes an illegal and unauthorized use of the famous picture of Howard Jarvis that appeared in Time magazine, which is copyrighted material and privately owned by the HJTA and another organization. We were told the picture was sourced from the Google Images Library. The Google images Library clearly instructs any potential user that the picture “may be subject to copyright” and reports the picture back to a website that firmly, very clearly asserts a copyright on the picture and states “All material on this website is copyrighted.” One would think the experienced journalists at CalBuzz would understand copyrights for journalistic materials, including those clearly marked as such. CalBuzz says they will remove the offending material “by noon,” but all the damage will be done by then, when the website has received the majority of it’s page views. Beware a message of “lies, damn lies” that comes from a source that itself disingenuously rips off other people’s property.
