Screw you, usage rights, says politician


Sebastian Edathy is one of the young(er) stars of the Social Democratic Bundestag faction. He belongs to the committee on legal affairs and is called an expert on copyright law, according to Die Welt newspaper.

Recently Edathy put a photograph of the liberal minister Rösler on his Facebook page, with a not so friendly ‘joke’. Then a photographer went to Edathy and said: you have a lot of pictures on your Facebook page, for your political activities. Did you obtain the usage rights from those photographers?

Edathy’s reaction: you can sue me if you want, and: ‘Sie können mich mal… kreuzweise!” (Roughly: ‘Screw you.’)
