Image of The Beatles on vending machine

Recommended Posts

I was having a coffee in a bar here in the Canary Islands this morning and noticed that the cigarette vending

machine was sporting a large image ( A3 size) of The Beatles. It had me thinking: illegal use, somebody licenced

image for use in selling tobacco via Spanish vending machines ( unlikely), RF image...?

Well If they didn't license it, i wouldn't want to be them.

 

Their was a case recently where Michael Jordan (NBA star) Image was used on a steak menu or something (Giving people the Impression he was endorsing it)

I saw that; ouch!

 

If the image is being used without permission, okay for me to upload an image of the vending machine to Alamy?

Under English law, yes, it's incidental to the photograph so not infringing. I must have plenty like that.
