Submission + - English heritage claiming copyright on stonehenge. (

EilidhsDad writes: Fotolibra have a blog post containing an email they have received from English Heritage stating that Fotolibra are breaking the law by selling pictures of Stonehenge.
From the blog post:"We are sending you an email regarding images of Stonehenge in your fotoLibra website. Please be aware that any images of Stonehenge can not be used for any commercial interest, all commercial interest to sell images must be directed to English Heritage."
So why do English Heritage think they have sole rights to images of a publicly viewable, ancient monument? Are they just trying to issue vain threats in the hope that people will really buy this so called 'right' ?
