There's this guy who has been painting scenes of the Diamond Jubilee, Wimbledon tennis tournament and the 2012 Olympics on the gate of his house.

He has even made one of Tintin in the style of the recent movie. Here's the page, just scroll down a bit and you should find it.

Note to moderators: No, I do not think he asked permission from the copyright holders before painting that Tintin scene, but humour me on this one just this once! After all, if the Daily Mail of all papers thinks that it is OK to publish the picture then it should be fine. There is such a thing as the fair use of copyrighted materials.

If the Daily Mail thinks that is it OK to publish the picture then it should be fine--to post a link to the newspaper article here, yes. However, if we were dealing with a page/site that showcases (possibly) unauthorised Tintin works, it would not be fine by our policy/rules to post a link to the images/page/site here.

As we have been targeted by Moulinsart before, the Moderating Team work hard to keep Tintinologist.org squeaky clean to stay out of legal trouble*. It is expected of Tintinologist.org members to agree with and help us in this effort; therefore, if you feel your post may provoke questions from Moderators, please consult them first before posting. Community membership here is entirely voluntary, and those who disagree with our policies/rules are quite free to choose to not sign up.

Cheers,
Irene
