Justice = Plaigarism?
The European Citizens’ Initiative is an importing group fighting for a “fairer and more efficient society.” “Unfortunately,” argues Mirko Ilic, “their fight for a ‘fairer and more efficient society’ is fought with totally unfair treatment of me.” They co-opted his image of “Liberty & Justice” on their promotional materials without asking permission, giving proper credit, and collaged it together with other images. Moreover, to add insult to injury, they redrew the image on other materials “I have given the ‘Liberty & Justice’ image to hundreds of different organizations and individuals after I was asked,” he adds. “never charging for usage. Most of them have credited me out of respect. That is how that is supposed to work.” If they had asked, he would have given it to European Citizens’ Initiative too.
