Sun Stealin’

by at 2:46 pm.

In an unbelievably stupid and clumsy move, the Lowell Sun has been caught, yet again, stealing photos from people and calling them Sun file photos. This time, it’s from blogger Marianne, from Art is the Handmaid of Human Good. It was first posted on her write up about the new Father Morissette Boulevard bike lanes, dated from August 28, 2013.

The Cub Reporter responded to Marianne on Twitter, but you shouldn’t hold your breath on them fixing it (and it’s already in the print edition, anyone want to wager if they’ll post an apology?). It’s still there as of this posting, anyway.

Here is the photo in use on the website, and Marianne also posted a pic of it in use in print edition as well:

You can see in the writing underneath the photo, that they claim it as a Sun file photo, and even that they’re selling it if you want to buy it:

Excuse my French but…what a bunch of fucking amateurs.

    So? Did anyone see an apology for the outright stealing of this photo in today’s fish wrapper?

    Wonder if they plan on paying Marianne since they used this online AND in print. Last I checked, at least $100 or $200 is probably a fair rate.

    She should send them an invoice, and copy the Globe and Herald :)
