The owner of the store, Debra Krause-McDonnell, said that she did not give permission for her business to be shown and that some customers have told her they'll no longer shop there.

The scene was from stock footage bought from a Cincinnati video company, Faux said. He did not know the name of the company but said he was told by the Obama campaign that 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.


Not that the article says this business is struggling, but I wouldn't be suprised if it was - given that the owner has no idea what the contracts she signs actually mean.

Your store was featured in an Obama ad. I'm never shopping here again.
I'm really sorry about that. I sold some stock footage of the store a few years ago, I really had no idea it would be used this way.
I DON'T CARE. YOU'RE FEATURED IN AN OBAMA AD! THEREFORE YOU ARE THE ENEMY! I WILL DESTROY YOU!

teeny: I can sympathize with the owner a little. If I sold stock footage, it wouldn't have immediately occured to me that it would be used in anything controversial like a campaign ad. With all the Chick-Fil-A attention whoring going on right now, I can respect a business that prefers to remain neutral. While it was 100% legal to use the footage, it would make them look extra awesome if they removed it anyway.


Then you're be a short sighted fool. :)

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.

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!

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.

'Some' customers hardly counts as struggling, and who's to say she didn't pick up a few Obama supporters in the deal. I still stand by my original point however: you can't be that good of a businessman if you'll sign any damn thing put in front of you without reading it first.
