Righting Wrongs Andrew Eborn on BBC – The Queen, Paddington & Artist’s Rights
Andrew Eborn was on BBC Look North discussing the rights of Artist Eleanor Tomlinson who gained attention this year with her sketches of Queen Elizabeth holding hands with Paddington Bear. The drawings received millions of likes and shares, first during the Jubilee, then again after her death. Eleanor from East Yorkshire says the drawings – and the Queen – mean a lot to her. Which is why she’s so disgusted that online sellers on sites like eBay, Amazon and Etsy have taken the pictures without permission and are plastering them on everything from mugs to magnets, from t-shirts to tote bags.
