Can I use a BBC image, which makes it look like Jeremy Corbyn is using Nazi salute

We're waiting for Geoff Beacon to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

1) Will the BBC fair use policy allow me to use an image of the front news page on the BBC website of the 24th June? This showed Jeremy Corbyn holding his arm in a position reminiscent of a Nazi salute. The more detailed image of Jeremy Corbyn is shown at this URL http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-.... It is shown as a splash page in front of video content.

2) Was the picture taken by BBC staff? If not how did the BBC obtain the picture?

3) Was the image shown cropped from the original? If so, was it cropped by BBC staff?

4) Will the BBC fair use policy allow me to use the detailed picture?

Yours faithfully,

Geoff Beacon

Dear FOI Enquiries,

Your reply says

“Unfortunately, we are unable to grant permission for the re-use of images on the BBC website, as
the images we use come from a range of sources with which we have a variety of licensing and re-use
agreements, and therefore, we don't own the copyright for many of these.”

But under the heading 'I want to use a photo' in the 'Help and Feedback' section of the BBC website it says

"You can enquire about using photos that appear on the BBC News website by emailing the News Website Permissions team at [email address]."

These seem to contradict. Do they?

Your reply suggests that the BBC do hold the copyright to the picture in question.

I wish to know if the BBC have a policy (explicit or otherwise) of refusing permission on material that will be used to criticise the BBC. More specifically will the BBC refuse permission for this particular picture?

Yours sincerely,

Geoff Beacon

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Can I use a BBC image, which makes it look like Jeremy Corbyn is using Nazi salute'.

The latest part of this FOI was to obtain details of the original image that was cropped by BBC staff.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,
