Today, the Daily Mirror have used a photo of Morgana, a photographer and model, without permission. This alone is nothing new; it happens every day.
But it gets worse. Her photo is on the front page, with the title ‘Women Who Kill’, alongside portraits of genuine murderers. The Mirror have also used her photo (an artistic self portrait) at full size, to illustrate a giant double page spread about a real serial killer, ‘Lady Death’, with the tagline, ‘35 male bodies all in labelled coffins in her wine cellar’. Morgana has quotes splashed over her such as “I Wanted To Be The Last Woman In their Lives” and ‘35 victims’. 
They stole the photo from Morgana’s Deviant Art gallery and cropped her copyright and logo off the bottom. 
The Mirror’s horrifying disregard for copyright and lazy, cheap journalism knows no bounds. Did they think they would get away with using this photo, without permission or payment, in pretty much the most libellous way possible? How stupid are these people?
Needless to say, Morgana is taking legal action.

    A damned disgrace! All bets should now be off with the media. I wonder how they’d like it if the tables were turned?
