More at the link.A British model says she was left furious after the Spanish government used her image without permission and edited out her prosthetic leg.
The photo was used as part of a body positivity campaign launched by Spain's equality ministry.
But Sian Green-Lord, 32, said she only found out about the campaign when friends messaged her about it.
She is the second woman featured in the campaign to say her photos were used without permission.
On Friday, Nyome Nicholas-Williams, from London, told the BBC that an image from her Instagram page was used in the poster released by the Spanish Institute for Women
"Given the - justified - controversy over the image rights in the illustration, I have decided that the best way to make amends for the damages that may have resulted from my actions is to share out the money I received for the work and give equal parts to the people in the poster," the artist said.
Beginners error, surely, by someone with no idea about copyright law... otherwise you wouldn't plaster it all over a national poster campaign.The Spanish government recently ran an ad campaign aimed at women with the aim of showing that all women's bodies are "beach ready" no matter size or shape. It features a selection of ladies badly photoshopped onto a picture of a beach. It has transpired however that at least two of the women had their bodies used without their consent. To add the icing on the cake, one of them had her prosthetic leg edited out as apparently "all women" are only beach ready if they possess a full complement of limbs.
You couldn't make it up!

Sooo . . . what exactly do you two do for a living that leaves you with so much time on your hands your colleague has to stay busy by keeping tabs on his dryer? What does this contraption provide him with, humidity readings? All you need for knowing when the drying cycle is over is a timer — but a timer's not good enough, huh? Not enough interruptions for him huh? A timer goes off only once, and he prefers to keep looking at his phone over and over and over throughout the drying process, huh?I was discussing this topic with a Scottish colleague a couple of days ago.
He said he'd just bought an Internet-enabled Candy tumble dryer, so you can stop/start and monitor the drying process from your smartphone.
Far easier to take your laundry down to the canal like I do.Sooo . . . what exactly do you two do for a living that leaves you with so much time on your hands your colleague has to stay busy by keeping tabs on his dryer?
