Prime Minister Breaches Copyright

It’s all very well to be bashed repeatedly over the head by adverts about copyright infringement relating to music and movies, but it seems that the Prime Minister’s new website apparently does a fine job of ignoring copyright and, specifically, the Creative Commons license on the WordPress theme it uses. Why am I not surprised that the government feels it can ignore the law when it suits it to?

Update: More on this, and other stuff relating to the site, from the Register.

One thought on “Prime Minister Breaches Copyright

  1. What a shame. It’s not even like it was an accident – they deliberately removed an attribution!
    What’s more, the website was highly temperamental for the first week or so – was rejecting something like 2/3rds of requests.
    Tell you what though, I was surprised to see so many 3rd party widgets: Flickr, Youtube and Twitter. Shame there’s no last.fm…
