I agree. This ruling is absurd. This extrapolates to mean that all works written for a symphony orchestra violate the copyright of the first tune performed by a symphony orchestra. This is the legal system gone mad. If it had been put up as a design patent issue then maybe I could agree in part but then prior artwork would have shot it to pieces. Every tourist that has ever been to London prior to the original photo used in this case should be looking at their photos and launching a suit for breach of copyright on the supposed copyright holder.
