Hi Fae, Andy, and all
I agree that trying to apply copyright to a 2000 year old item is pretty
outrageous, although I'm going to suppose that it stems from ignorance
rather than anything else. We have some contacts at the BM although I'm not
sure about Tullie House Museum, however I'm happy to contact both
institutions, in the first instance, to give them the opportunity to
correct this. I'll let you know how I get on.

Attempting to embarrass the British Museum is
misguided and certainly
not build bridges for future collaboration.
Perhaps, but as Fae indicates, it might also cause some movement.
What's your - WMUK's, I mean - alternative proposed action?
