Love Derren.

Oh dear. This is rubbish on so many levels, not least the laughter track that's been obviously, unnaturally stuck on at points where there was meant to be a joke. I only stumbled across it waiting for the Derren Brown repeat; I suggest you make an effort to avoid it.
[Watch it (again) on 4oD. But I recommend you don't.]


Legal row over National Portrait Gallery images placed on Wikipedia by Maev Kennedy
"The National Portrait Gallery has threatened legal proceedings for breach of copyright against a man who downloaded thousands of high-resolution images from its website, and placed them in an archive of free-to-use images on Wikipedia... Photographs of works of art are protected by copyright in the UK, but not in the US, where Coetzee lives...
the photographs were only taken for the NPG as part of a £1m digitisation project in the last couple of years. The gallery... said it would be happy for the online site to use low-resolution images but was "very concerned" about loss of revenue from copyright fees for the high-resolution versions, which form a significant part of its income"
