The Mercury, IOL quotes MarkLives, forgets to credit us
Colleen Dardagan writes that “the airline broke the news on Twitter yesterday, saying: ‘Oh dear, letter from Fifa’s lawyers says we broke their trademark of the use of ‘South Africa’ and think our non-WC ad was about soccer … even the use of our national flag was an issue. It is absolutely outrageous. We have signed over our country, its symbols and our economy to one Sepp Blatter. Nasty.”
Well Kulula didn’t break the news on Twitter yesterday. It broke the news on Twitter on March 12th.
It only tweeted “oh dear letter from FIFA’s lawyers says we broke their trademark of the use of ‘South Africa’ and think our non-WC ad was about soccer…” as per the original MarkLives.com story. The rest was lifted straight from our editorial without credit.
Update 15:36: “I said it, Mr Blatter, not Kulula.“
