The New York Times has reached a settlement with powerHouse Books over use of 64 of The Times front pages without the newspaper’s permission. It appears that powerHouse Books published a book, “War Is Beautiful: The New York Times Pictoral Guide to the Glamour of Armed Conflict,” without permission from the newspaper or obtaining a license for use of 64 images that belong to The Times.
What have to ask: Did the book publisher not know it needed permission from the owner of the images to use them? Or did the powerhouse executives think they could get away with it, and nobody would notice? Or did they think that no one would actually buy a book called “War is Beautiful?” And how did they come up with “powerHouse?” And why the lower case “p?”
