This is a link post Daily Mail doesn't notice not so subtle edit to twitter handle
The past week I've been spearheading the investigations into the Black Mirror filming going on in Croydon at the moment. I've been posting in /r/BlackMirror on Reddit.

One of my reddit chums got some great pictures, as did her boyfriend. The DM decided to use their tweets in the article... to which the boyfriend took offence.

The link might change, but I captured a screenshot in all its glory. About halfway down.

Edit: Nice response to the DM asking for permission from someone else - https://twitter.com/Mailonlinepics/status/989072956163805186

You could also change your profile photo to goatse.

That'd learn 'em.

This is a normal post I got £800 from them for using a gif after I said they couldn't
It took months but it's worth keeping badgering them with an invoice

This is a normal post more than likely
still, better than the 100 they offered me to begin with.
The Sun offered 200 but were at least decent enough to take it straight down when I said no again

This is a normal post So you said 'no' to the Mail on principle because they spread racist propaganda,
but since they used your work despite your refusal you persistently chased them for your share of the profit made from racist propaganda, on principle.

This is a normal post What's racist propaganda got to do with a gif of an electricity pylon?
I said no they can't use it simply because I didn't want them to use/profit from it

This is a normal post Isn't that why you wouldn't let them use it? Would you have said 'no' to the Guardian?

(, Wed 25 Apr 2018, 23:12, Reply)
This is a normal post I didn't put that much thought in to it
Just said no when they asked.
The guardian didn't ask/use it so I never considered that.
I let various science sites use it if that helps.

This is a normal post Did they host it
or was it an embedded tweet?

Surely you can only get cash if they host it themselves, right?

Recently, DM, The Sun, and a few other have been noticeably nicking things from reddit subs, especially /r/CasualUK and some people have got a few hundred. Someone else created an offensive watermark, but I think it's better to just let them nick the pictures for a payday.

This is a normal post They hosted a copy of the gif
They asked if they could use it, I said no, it then appeared on their site so I told them to take it down, but they kept running it for 24 hours.

This is a normal post THEY'VE DONE IT!
They hosted his photos for another article, as well as one of mine that someone else tweeted.

Can you do me a favour, and PM me some pointers on what the gig is, then I can forward that info to everyone affected.

Cheers!

This is a normal post Write down everything they've done wrong with times and send it to them.
Include a copy of the request to use the photos
The reply saying they can't
Then the time the article went up.
Send it to [email protected]
They'll probably offer 100 first. You can expect them to go quiet for weeks at a time

This is a normal post I'm surprised there is no
account dedicated to retweeting responses to the Mail picture desk.

I like this one I just found on a quick browse.
