Sarah Palin and her political action committee have been named in a copyright infringement lawsuit over the use of an iconic 9/11 photo.
The newspaper publisher North Jersey Media Group Inc. is suing the former Alaska governor for posting a copy of the image on Palins SarahPAC website and her personal Facebook page without permission.
The photo depicts three New York City firefighters hoisting an American flag among the rubble at the World Trade Center after the 2001 attacks.
"The photo was pulled from Pain's Facebook page Friday, according to The Alaska Dispatch. It had drawn more than 140,000 'likes' and some 1,500 comments."
Is this the new ploy?
Sue her out of existence like they did in Alaska?
Time to make another donation to Sarah before I have to pay for Odumbo care.
How about the firefighter patriots sue these idiots for using their pictures?
Where would be be without the British press?
Says more about them than her.
Another leftgroup walking the thin red line of terrorism.

You have got to be joking me?
That photo belongs to one particular person?
And they are insane enough to deprive any American of its use?
Gibbs head slap x2...
They still fear her more than any other.
I’m not sure of the copyright regulations on this—but it seems to me I’ve seen the picture many times. And I’m sure Sarah is smart enough to cover all her bases.
The world would be better off with a President Palin.... :)
This was the photo they were going to make a statue out of but the liberal fascists demanded the races be changed to one white one black and one Hispanic so they said F it and called it off.
“The photo was pulled from Pain’s Facebook page Friday, according to The Alaska Dispatch. It had drawn more than 140,000 ‘likes’ and some 1,500 comments.”
LOL. :) It sounds like she has quite the fanbase.
Sarah is media savvy, smart, beautiful. I probably sound like a guy :) but I’m a 50 year-old woman who really admires her.
I can’t remember who it is, but someone has a Sarah ping list; perhaps someone could ping that person. Don’t have access to question marks because my kids have made this a French keyboard. :(
That’d be onyx.
Onyx, consider yourself pinged.
See post #14.
Are they going to sue ME? I shared that pic on facebook on 9/11. COME GET ME LOSERS!!!
I hope Sarah runs in 2016 in a completely new and grassroots way.
This is flat out BS....that pic is posted thousands of places on the net...
Google image search confirms this...looks like a mighty selective lawsuit....
What are the odds the family that owns the jersey new group are big Obama supporters....
This iconic picture of firefighters raising the stars and stripes in the rubble of Ground Zero was nearly excluded from the 9/11 Memorial Museum because it was rah-rah American, a new book says...
New York Post article
This should be seen as an image of public domain, i.e. the statue of liberty. The French are not suing Americans for that image, right?
