company officials said they did explain to Krause's manager that they were filming stock footage that could be purchased and used for any reason.

Farking commerce, how does it work? This is obviously Obummers fault! Now they should reshoot because this idiot store owner was clueless and her customers are bigoted partisan fools.

Girl sleeping in Clinton's 'spooky phonecall ad' against Obama was for Obama.

We shrugged.

Storefront owner in Obama's ad is not for Obama?

*shrug*

We're Americans. Watching television is the one thing we're really good at. We know what stock footage is.
 
2012-08-09 10:35:38 PM

Lsherm: The Obama campaign is in the right legally, but it doesn't really matter in this case. If she wants them to stop using the footage (or at least the part that identifies her business) - it's dickish to keep using it.


If you're reduced to selling your company's image for stock footage, your company is struggling, though, so I'm going with Obama campaign wins here, legally and factually correct > slightly impolite.
 
2012-08-09 10:35:42 PM

CreamFilling: It does seem especially ironic that he's talking about things being taken out of context and then the importance of standing behind small businesses, and yet they do nothing to support this small business when the footage is taken out of context.


You do realize she went to the county Democrats to try to stop the ad, right?

The moral standpoint is that you should not sell your store's image to a stock video company if you wish to retain control over where that image is used.

The end.

According to the article: A store manager knew about the filming, Krause-McDonnell said, but was told it was for a survey on riot doors, those metal garage-type doors that pull down and lock to protect storefronts. That might be true, said Caleb Faux, director of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, who researched the ad confusion and spoke with Obama campaign officials in Columbus.

So the headline is misleading, submitter, the article doesn't say how the Obama campaign responded.

According to the article: "I've been put into a position I didn't ask for," she said Wednesday after the Hamilton County Republican Party sent out an email about the ad that accused Democrats of not responding to the owner's concerns. "I'm a little angry."

All we know is that the Hamilton County Republican Party somehow got involved and escalated the issue.
For a website that claims it is in the business of Exposing and Combating Liberal Media Bias, News Busters is in fact hyping a fabricated issue.

2/10
Not outrageous enough.

Typical Obama, running away from a baby. If he runs away from babies, how weak is his foreign policy?

did you also notice that his desk is totally empty?

They weren't supposed to USE the footage on anything the owner, or her customers, might not like!

Or, for anything, really. They were just supposed to give her money and go away.

starsrift: Yeah, the Obama campaign has the right to keep using it... but they just end up looking like dicks.

I'm sure they could find another business to use footage of.


You know who looks like an even bigger dick or complete moron if you stop and think about it for a few seconds instead of having a knee jerk reaction? The business owner who was paid money to have footage taken of their business and signed an agreement saying it can be used anyway the person who paid them for it wants, but now wants to cry and complain about somebody they don't approve of using it.

To paraphrase Jeffrey Lebowski, they're not wrong, they're just assholes. If they continue using it, that is.

I don't know if this has been said but she deserves to lose her business if she doesn't see the opportunity for the free advertising Obama's team provided.

What if it's all a ploy to help the business? The Right-wing Outrageosphere is gonna harp on this for a few weeks, and local derpers might flock there to 'protest' Obama.
 
2012-08-09 10:53:31 PM
So how is this ad any worse than the Romney one taking "you didn't build that" out of context with the guy in the commercial having received tons of government support?

Except the musicians who biatch didn't sign away all the usage rights to the songs, and the republicans didn't purchase those usage rights legally.

The article wont load on my phone but from the comments i think it is missing some facts.

Here is the chain of events:
She sells footage to a stock company.
Obama buys it for add.
She sees it in add and gets all pissy.
She calls obama folks who say they need to look into it and will get back to her.
She gets pissier that whatever random staffer couldnt immediately pull the add and calls the gop asking to put out a press release.
Obama is like damn chick we said wed get back to you, anyways it only had 1 day left so by the time we could pull it, it will be done.
Gop: but you forgot to take it off you tube! Why does obama hate small business!

Btw her deli is in the middle of a ghetto in a hippy market. Dont get me wrong, i shop there, but for the life of me i cant imagine a worse way she could of handled this. Would it of been that hard to quietly ask them to get rid of it? If business really is down over it, put a sign up saying while you are flattered for the national exposure your company is focused on providing quality meats and cheeses and does not endorse any candidate.

She's boned and the Obama people don't have to do a damned thing. Nor would Romney's folks if they used it. Another non-issue stoked up by Fox and Newsbusters, partners in idiocy.

So a small business owner losing business because a politician is using her store in a commercial is no big deal? Good thing Ms. Krause didn't build that business herself.


A small business owner losing business because they're an idiot signing away rights they don't understand is the way the world works. Unfortunately Ms. Krause didn't learn to read or her business might be doing better.

And by the way, this is free publicity, and she's using it to whine about her self-victimization. Bad things happen to everyone, they just happen more frequently to the people who invite them to stay. Good riddence, hopefully her genes won't survive her.

For clarification i shop at the market, which has vendors selling everything from local produce and meats to handmade soaps, camel meat and amazing geloto. Ive never bought anything in her store because i dont bother going places like that to buy the same lunch meat kroger sells. Www.cincinnati.com has more info on this.

Keizer_Ghidorah: So now Obama went back in time and created the Environmental Protection Agency? Damn, that time machine is efficient.


Nixon is credited with creating the EPA. In the last series of Doctor Who, Nixon was visited by the TARDIS. Which means, Obama must be one of the incarnations of the Doctor! That also means that Michelle is River Song, which I've got to admit, she kind of looked like when she was calling herself Mels.

Obamacare
Taxes
EPA

to name a few


He's lowered taxes, and most of Obamacare doesn't take effect until 2014.

Are you running low on blood and feathers yet?
