NSA Infringed Adam Hart-Davis' Photograph For Its PRISM Logo

Perhaps the NSA has finally met its match: copyright infringement. You may have seen the logo that the NSA is
using for the PRISM program (shown here upside down for a reason that will become clear shortly):


Well, it turns out that the prism image that they used is being used without permission. The photo was actually
taken by Adam Hart-Davis, a well-known BBC presenter. You can see the original below:

As Adam's son, Damon, notes in the link above, the image is free for use via his gallery under some
simple terms, including acknowledging the author. Damon jokingly suggests asking the NSA for a small donation,
though he worries about any undue attention from the folks at the NSA.

Of course, in a country where copyright laws trump all, perhaps Damon could sue for infringement and seek
discovery to find out all the documentation on PRISM.
