Oh Hell, it’s Monday Again

in Entertaining nonsense and profound thought

A lot has happened this weekend, and I’m not ready to process it yet. Some good and some tragic. While I think about what I want to say about it all I’m leaving you with this question:

If I were to photoshop one of my books into a famous prson’s hands such as Hugh Grant, or say President Barack Obama, would I be in a world of trouble? If I labeled it as such would that be okay? What are the laws governing the Internet? Any body know?

FGBVs for your awful weekend. As to the picture, I wouldn’t. But then I’m overly cautious and not a lawyer and tend to go with the theory that if I had to ask a lawyer, it’s not worth it. Basically, I’m no use whatsoever. Shutting up now.

Hey, girl, FGBVs. Hope things even out in a positive way. Thinking of you!

As for the other, let KarenB run it past her brother. The internet is fraught with danger.

Sounds like FGBVs and hugs are in order for you. Consider them sent. Whatever ugly thing happened, I’m sorry.

Hmmmm. I think it would be misrepresentation. These things can go viral in our crazy internet world and even though you might put, “Hey this is a joke,” underneath it, the photo can be passed around sans disclaimer.
Hope your day is getting better, Kate. Thanks for your support today on my first attempt at guest blogging (other than for the Betties, of course.)

Don’t know about the legalities – if you want I can run it by my lawyer brother. He’s got to be good for something, right? But I would think with attribution, you could do it.
Yeah, Monday.*sigh* On the bright side, they all have work and school today and I can be alone for the first time in days!
