And just pointed out back in the day, when things were happening the Sun appeared to think that they had bought the copyright to the photos.

Bidding war for Sun's Saddam pics | Media | MediaGuardian

A bidding war has kicked off for the rights to the Sun's pictures of Saddam Hussein in his prison cell, with News International demanding around £20,000 a photo.

According to sources, News International is demanding "tens of thousands" for the photographs, which show the former Iraqi dictator in his underwear and washing clothes.

Many newspapers were today weighing up the ethical as well as the financial considerations of publishing the photographs, but there is likely to be strong demand from American as well as UK media organisations.

The US military has said the photographs are in breach of the Geneva convention and has launched a mole hunt to find out who took them.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
