What happens when two political parties explicitly ignore the licensing agreement of a microstock agency?
A big heaping pile of fun, apparently:
It has emerged that two unionist parties who used a stock photo of the same model in rival election materials may have breached the terms and conditions for using the pictures.
The stock photography company which licenses the pictures, istockphoto, told the BBC it is investigating the matter.
The list of terms and conditions on the istockphoto website states these pictures cannot be used in a way that "depicts personal endorsement by model".
Section 4(a)7, to be precise.
But hey, who would ever actually expect politicians to follow silly little things like contracts and the law?
