Stunner. Leftist Yanks Pep Rally “Applause” Photo & Threatens Lawsuit
Yesterday, I posted this photo from Flickr taken at the Obama “Let’s Thrive” pep rally in Tucson on Wednesday.
As you can tell the Jumbotron included not just Obama’s speech but “applause” lines for the crowd.
After this was posted the photographer took down her photos from the pep rally.
(What a shock!)
Today RightNetwork received this threatening message from the leftist photographer:

Please take down the photo you posted on here:
My pictures on Flickr are Copyrighted All RIghts Reserved.
You have to have written permission from the artist to use this photo, which I will not give.
I have since taken this photo down from my Flickr page.
It was taken from my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/patrieningles/
If you do not take these photos down, I will have to take further action.
My response to Patti goes something like this:
Great shots from the pep rally. I figured that you would yank your photos after you noticed they were making the rounds. That’s why I took a screengrab of your Flickr page when I posted the photo. I knew this would happen. As you can see I switched the photo with the screengrab. Thanks for your work. I appreciate it. There is no violation of use. Go Obama.
Of course, the fact that this leftist yanked her photos and threatened to sue surprises no one.
