Submission + - BBC thinks its ok to take copyrighted things (theregister.co.uk)

jkcity writes: "The BBC has found itself in a spot of bother having to defend itself against taking pictures and content off twitter and other social media sites without permission and also without attributions. There response is that if you post it on a social media site your free to use it anyway you see fit as normal copyright laws don't apply. The BBC is probably not the only major news organztion that does this but only one I can find that has repsonded so far, I guess they are being willingly ignorant."
