I was a little
disappointed (although not
surprised) that Channel 4 News didn't stand up for themselves and show
the image (after consulting with their own legal team) so viewers
could make up their own minds about whether or not it should be on
Wikipedia - censorship is as big an issue for the press as it is for
How do you know that they didn't consult with their legal team and their
legal team told them not to do it? Not everyone has Mike Godwin for their
legal advisor, you know.
Because if their legal team said the image was illegal they wouldn't
have gone into a shop and bought a copy? Viewing the image on the
internet is one thing, actually buying it is quite another - I doubt
they would have done that if they knew it was illegal.
