Letter to the Editor of Gloucestershire Echo regarding an article they published concerning the above image (delivered by hand)

The Editor
Gloucestershire Echo

Wednesday 8th July 2009

Dear Editor,

I am writing to complain about the words attributed to me in the article regarding my making of an image based on ‘The Duchess’ published today in the Gloucestershire Echo.

As I do not receive any money whatsoever whilst I am between contracts I get closer and closer to bankruptcy every day. Significantly misquoting me does not help me retain my home.

I particularly object to the words attributed to me regarding copyright. I did not say those words and they are very misleading. I made my position very clear on the matter in a copy I lent {the journalist} in confidence of an email that I sent to GE Aviation on 9th April 2009. I also lent {the journalist} a copy of an email I received from the copyright owners of ‘The Duchess’ movie – Pathé Productions. In that email a senior executive kindly gave permission for my use of that particular image. It was not a general statement on copyright. Further it was clear that GE Aviation had not bothered contacting Pathé – they acted on a speculative basis. An act that may well bankrupt me.

I would have thought that my comments regarding the police and harassment were also an important part of the issue.
