UK Cabinet Office Dinged For Violating The Copyright Of The UK Cabinet Office

from the left-hand,-meet-right-hand dept

Last week, the UK’s Cabinet Office got plenty of publicity for putting some videos on YouTube, suggesting that it was a good way to get certain messages out to the public. In fact, in that article, the reporter sounded surprised, noting that the UK government is considered somewhat “backwards on understanding tech issues.” Well, perhaps people were a bit too quick to congratulate them on embracing the new technology. Today comes the news that the video has been pulled from YouTube for copyright violations. Whose copyright? Apparently the UK Cabinet Office’s. Yes, it appears one group within the Office is accusing a different group of violating its own copyrights in putting its own video on YouTube without permission. So, perhaps they’re not as backwards as people thought concerning new technologies, but they have a ways to go in understanding internal communications.
