Holiday Season for the CAS-IP Blog

As of today my Christmas holidays are starting.  Hooray!

The CAS-IP blog is therefore also going to take a break until the holiday season is over.

I will start blogging again at the start of 2009.

Happy Holidays to Everyone!

Rights over the French President’s wife’s image

This intellectual property story has been doing the rounds on all the main media and fashion sites this week.  The BBC lead link said,  “a company has been fined… $58.5k for selling bags with a nude image of Carla Bruni, wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.”  The image had been used without permission from either the photographer or Carla Bruni herself.
