Are these guys Mormons too?

Just had the DUP canvassers around the doors tonight canvassing for Willie McCrea (can you guess what constituency I live in?).  And received a very nice 8 page pamphlet with William's face on the front and the usual bumph inside.

A lot of very nice pictures inside of people doing different day to day things all saying 'We're voting DUP'

Now remembering my previous post 'I can't vote, I live in America' I wonder.............

Well, the wondering was right.  These guys have also been plucked from iStockPhoto.

Yup, you too can have a bit of 'Family fun', see a 'Farm worker', meet a 'random woman closeup', or bump into 'happy seniors'.  Still looking for the other ones.  Maybe if you find some of the other photos you can let me know?

Prohibited Uses. You may not do anything with the Content that is not expressly permitted in the preceding section or permitted by an Extended License. For greater certainty, the following are “Prohibited Uses” and you may not:

use or display any Content that features a model or person in a manner (a) that would lead a reasonable person to think that such person uses or personally endorses any business, product, service, cause, association or other endeavour; or (b) except where accompanied by a statement that indicates that the Content is being used for illustrative purposes only and any person depicted in the Content is a model, that depicts such person in a potentially sensitive subject matter, including, but not limited to mental and physical health issues, social issues, sexual or implied sexual activity or preferences, substance abuse, crime, physical or mental abuse or ailments, or any other subject matter that would be reasonably likely to be offensive or unflattering to any person reflected in the Content, unless the Content itself clearly and undisputedly reflects the model or person in such potentially sensitive subject matter in which case the Content may be used or displayed in a manner that portrays the model or person in the same context and to the same degree depicted in the Content itself;
The above picture certainly looks like endorsement of a cause to me.

I wonder if the DUP actually read the terms and conditions of the licence agreement before they bought the stock American images to put in their pamphlets and onto their posters?  You would have thought that they would have learned from the poster fiasco that was also covered by the BBC here and here.

But then again, maybe not..

Does it really matter?

If we're going to waste even more time on this whole iStock thing, it's no wonder we get the politicians and the politics we get.

Petty point scoring on some silly pics is so myopic when we've an economy in meltdown, significant budget cuts looming whoever is in government after May 6, huge challenges in health, employment and the environment, and here we go again on the model thing.


Let's get on with getting the right people in place who can get this country sorted and waste no more time on ridiculous questions about images. Really...does it matter?

Thanks for your comment, Socialgandhi.

Does it matter? Well actually it does. When parties can't actually understand terms and conditions for use of photos what else are they missing in the laws coming through for NI?

Besides, its funny and raised a smile with me -so I blogged it.

I appreciate your comments and agree with your own comments on your own blog

"We believe that it is our right to think and speak for ourselves, and to be heard."

So going on your own blog (which I have to say is very good and now have you on my reader) I am speaking and thinking for myself on this blog.

On a similar vain, I'm convinced jim allister's pamphlet has a photoshoped picture of him superimposed onto some sheeps. A few of the other photos are similar.

Cheeky ;)

Though I have not seen Jim Allister's pamphlet but would be interested to know if the people are from NI or not.
