Regardless of the legal rights and wrongs of this case, the photographer is plainly a p**t.

He consented for the photograph to be freely available on the internet. Thus, he has no objection to people seeing it.

There is no suggestion that the school was in any way profiting from this. This was simply a presentation innocently prepared by a pupil.

Furthermore, that presentation included a hyperlink to the page where the photograph was lawfully displayed. Clearly, a sensible factual attempt was made to honour and respect the source (even if said attempt was insufficient in law).

If anything, such a presentation would merely increase the flow of traffic to the page where the photograph could lawfully be seen.

I note that this photograph was uploaded in 2009. Given the above, I question whether this case has really been a productive use of nine years of this gentleman's life.
