As photographer is urged to act against Riley for using his image, please remember Mike’s libel defence

The photographer whose image of Jeremy Corbyn being arrested at an anti-apartheid rally has hit out against Rachel Riley over her manipulation of his picture.

Rob Scott said – well, here’s what he said, plus his note of thanks after more than 16,000 people shared his tweet in support of him:

Mr Scott has been urged to take court action against Ms Riley – and also to support my own defence against her accusation that I libelled her.

I have no idea whether he has done so – contributions are anonymous unless a person leaves a comment with their name attached.

But I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has.

At the time of writing, I’m around £2,000 away from the target amount needed to fund the next step of my own case, and the clock on the CrowdJustice page says there’s only one day left.

It might roll over and I may be given another month – I don’t know.

So, just in case it doesn’t, please bear with me while I appeal to your generosity yet again.

Email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to the CrowdJustice site. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge.

If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

If you use other social media platforms, please mention the campaign there, quoting the appeal address.

And please consider making another donation yourself – or contributing for a first time, if you haven’t already.

If Mr Scott does decide to take action against Ms Riley for breaching copyright on his image, it may well affect the future of my case – but I don’t know. Ms Riley may well reconsider her actions if she has litigation against her draining her resources.

But I can’t bank on it. That’s why I’m repeating my appeal again.

This is a vitally important case. Please don’t let it fail for the want of a comparatively small amount.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
