to clarify for anyone stupid enough to think that this somehow originated from this forum ( cough cough you know who I mean) I found this link on a non maddie site - where others were rightly outraged at her image being used in this way

and brought it here as I thought it needed to be known

personally I don't think this has anything to do with Mccanns

I've just had a courtesy reply from Low Cost Holidays, while I'm confident they'll removed the advert, I can't see them giving me any more information, even though I hope they will.

Morning kathybelle, did you ask lowcost if they had received permission from the McCanns to reproduce the photo?

They also need to do a bit of research about browsers, web images and cache.

The McCanns have their spies, witness amazon withdrawing Pat Browns Book etc, I am pretty sure if we have seen it, someone who knows the McCanns
has. Gerry was quick enough to get Madeleines colomba registered and would regard any photo used by a Company as a copyright infringement.

I'm surprised that, even though there are numerous McCannites monitoring every word on forums which don't agree with their version of events, that they haven't been made aware of this by now and I would have expected a huge cry of outrage from Clarrie at the very least by now. Why is all quiet on the western front about this? Think how much the Fund could be topped up by a little legal action about the misuse of the picture. Would we hear if they were at this very moment unleashing C-R?

Sorry Panda, your post went as I was posting mine and you think the same as I do - they must know by now.

Good morning Panda

No, this is what I said in my email "I was appalled to see Voucher Digg, using a photograph of missing Madeleine McCann, to advertise Low Cost Holidays." "As you can see, I've put the link which will take you straight to the advertisement, on here."

Talk about coincidence.......I'm half watching/ listening to T.V. and Pepsi are showing a photoof Michael Jackson on their new Cans to get back some ot their sales lost to Coca-Cola.It's the photo of him in a white suit with the Trilby Hat on . Can't think of the Song title, I know I like it because it's all men dancing and leaning so far forward you think they are going to topple over.!!! Pepsi reckon Michael is still so popular that even though he has been dead for years their sales will increase. COPYRIGHT of the photo belongs to his Estate which has been paid for the use of the photo.

Well, if the photo disappears you can guess the McCanns found out, if it stays then the McCanns got cheap advertisinng, but at 3yrs old the photo is
hardly likely to lead to finding Madeleine, although it is good publicity.

I've just received another email from Operations at Low Cost Holidays. I'll write down the contents of the email, exactly as they were sent to me.

Good Afternoon Mrs ********

Thank you for your email.

We appreciate that you have shared this information with us and I have forwarded it to our marketing team.

Please contact us for further assistance.

Regards

********* ******

I didn't like disclosing the name of the person who sent me the email, that's why I have used the asterisks.

I'm a bit puzzled about the line where the person says, "Please contact us for further assistance." Does this mean that they want me to contact them? or do they mean if I have any problems I can contact them?

That's just a standard comment on e-mails and letters from any organisation, Kathybelle. I used to put it on my letters when I worked for a local council but I hoped that the recipients wouldn't take me up on the offer!

I've just checked voucher digg website and Madeleine's picture is still displayed with the vile "Best Value" caption.

it's likely that, as it's a Bank Holiday in the U K, there's nobody around to remove the photo. I'll be very surprised if it remains after tomorrow.

Anorak has picked up on this. There is an article up entitled, "Best Value' Madeleine McCann is selling holidays on a travel site".

I agree. I keep checking and it's still there. Even if it is a UK web site, surely with a busy site, one that takes bookings for holidays, someone is around on the Bank Holiday. This is atrocious using Madeleine's photo to sell holidays.

I've just been looking at the newspaper headlines on the Sky News Website. At the top of the front page of the Daily Star, there is an article that says "McCanns horror at Maddy hols ad." I can feel a lawsuit coming on.
