    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

  • Merseyside Police Supports National Week Of Action By Forces On Alcohol

    Merseyside Police is supporting a national week of police action on alcohol and calling time on people who drink irresponsibly and end up involved in crime.

    As part of the week of action, officers have been carrying out a range of activities including visiting schools, speaking to students as part of freshers week and working with a range of partners and the licensing trade to promote responsible drinking.

    This weekend officers will be in town centres across Merseyside to make sure people are enjoying themselves safely and responsibly and those who have had too much to drink aren't behaving anti-socially or ending up involved in criminality.

    Patrols will also be visiting a range of licensed premises including pubs, clubs and off-licenses to check they are being run responsibly.

    The operation is being led by Superintendent Mark Wiggins from Liverpool North.  He said: "Lots of people like to drink socially, but when people take it too far the links between alcohol and crime can't be ignored and have to be tackled.

    "Figures from across the country show that nearly fifty per cent of all violent crime is alcohol related and that figure rises to nearly 75 per cent if we look at assualts which require treatment.

    "If you pre-load and are on the way to being drunk before you even leave home, you are 2.5 times more likely to be involved in violence when you're out, either as a victim or an offender. 

    "People drinking too much can also have a devastating effect on communities, with alcohol related anti-social behaviour by far the most common form that people experience. 

    "The message seems pretty clear.  If you drink too much, you are putting yourselves and others at risk and are far more likely to end up involved in criminal behaviour.

    "That's why we are working hard with our partners and the licensing industry to promote responsible drinking across Merseyside and make sure that our town centres and Liverpool city centre remain great places to enjoy a safe night out.

    "We have spent the week so far getting some of our key messages out and this weekend we will be out across the force re-inforcing them, including increased patrols, the use of drugs dogs and visiting licensed premises.

    The force is also backing the new card being issued as part of the Proof of Age Standards Scheme.  Superintendent Wiggins added:  "Up until now there have been lots of different cards under the scheme which haven't been widely accepted.  This has meant young people still carry passports or driving licenses as proof of ID, many of which end up lost or stolen and being used fraudulently.

    "The new card incorporates proper checks on those approving the applications and will have a single design which incorporates the unique "PASS" hologram.  We are confident the new card will be widely accepted and should mean that people who are over 18 can get into licensed premises and those who aren't, can't.

    "People need to take responsibility for their own drinking and the consequences it has, but the pro-active stance we are taking should ensure that our night time economies across Merseyside remain safe for everyone to enjoy."

  • CCTV Footage Appeal - Assault - Hoylake

    Merseyside Police has issued CCTV footage of a man officers would like to speak to following an assault at a bar in Hoylake on Saturday, 24 May.

    Officers were called, at around 2am the following morning, Sunday, 25 May, by a 65-year-old man reporting that he had been assaulted in Jack Rabbit Slims Bar, Grosvenor Road, at sometime between 11.30pm and midnight.

    The victim went to hospital where he received treatment for an injury to his lip.

    Officers subsequently attended at the premises and carried out enquiries, including speaking to potential witnesses.  CCTV from the venue has been located and reviewed.

    Detective Inspector Rachel Wilson, Wirral CID, said: "This appears to be a violent and unprovoked attack on the victim who was trying to enjoy his night out.

    "He was hit in the face so hard he was knocked unconscious and needed treatment in hospital.

    "We have been carrying out extensive enquiries and we have now obtained CCTV footage which we believe shows the alleged incident in the premises. 

    Link to footage is as follows:

    "We think the man highlighted in the footage could have vital information to help with our investigation and I would urge him, or anyone who recognises him, to get in touch with us as soon as possible."

    An investigation into the full circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing.

    Anyone with information is asked to call detectives in Wirral CID on 0151 777 2265 or via the police 101 number, quoting reference 0514099226.

    Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
