Here is a link to a video containing an image of the chinese person picture under discussion:



that video is from this news site (I am not familiar with the site, if you are and don't like them for whatever reason then don't open the vid):

Never said it was. So what else is there that might prevent someone from posting said image willy-nilly?

Have attached the image in question. If you do decide to click on it, you will discover that the Chinese man is running in exactly the same manner as both the magician and the man with the lengthy beard.

There is nothing strange about magicians doing tricks. There is nothing strange about a man with a long beard. There is nothing strange about a Chinese person eating with chopsticks. They are treated in the same manner.

There would, however, be something strange about any of them running down a residential street.

I have studied in China. I have worked in Taiwan. I have passed through Hong Kong a good number of times. I have eaten at night markets and in side alleys. I have seen Chinese people standing, sitting and squatting while eating with chopsticks. I have done so myself.

I have never seen anybody running while eating with chopsticks. That would be strange, even in China. As strange as a magician pulling rabbits out of a hat while running down a street.

The Chinese looking person is carrying an umbrella, how sensible!

You already know the answer. It's sort of a big deal around here.

No, I don't know the answer, I haven't spent a lot of time here in recent years, and when I visit it's usually only a few threads.

I have posted a video above wherein the images under discussion are displayed, and the commentary is what I consider to be balanced.

If that doesn't meet with a moderator views, so be it, but it would, imo, mean that discussion is no longer reasonably open in this forum.

That person might well be Chinese. Hard to tell from the stylized picture. The magician might also be. However, I think the image causing the outrage among some is of the Chinese person with the queue holding a bowl and a pair of chopsticks.

I find all those images inoffensive, and wonder out loud how they've created this storm in a bloody tea cup

Oh copyright, I see. Well here in Australia up to 10% of a book can be copied, so those images would be within that parameter.

My first guess would be risk of copyright infringement, though there may be a case for the criticism, review, etc, exemption, which I don't know whether that is applicable in the EU.

It might also add fuel to the flames.

(interestingly, the first thing I thought of was the Politics section of mobileread, where issues of a political and other diverse discourse nature takes place. You can tell I haven't thought much about copyright of late, lol)

Image copyright is independent of text copyright.

is the image under question an image, or is it a stylised drawing within the text? And is it a matter of difference


Anything pre 1955 is out of copyright here in Aus

It would be better to link to the image than to copy it.
