The folks behind John McCain’s MySpace website had their hand virtually slapped for using an image file lifted from someone else’s server this morning when the guy they were lifting it from (Mike Davidson, the CEO of NewsVine) decided to teach them a lesson by replacing the image with an alternative one.
NewsVine designed the free MySpace template that McCain’s campaign was using. NewsVine allows anyone to use the template, as long as they use their own image files and give NewsVine credit. McCain’s campaign didn’t do either.
The new image read, “Today I announce that I have reversed my position and come out in full support of gay marriage…particularly marriage between passionate females.”
In October, McCain told Chris Matthews on Hardball: “I think gay marriage should be allowed if there’s a ceremony kind of thing if you want to call it that. I don’t have any problem with that…I think private ceremonies are fine. I do not think gay marriage should be legal.”
