So...does this mean I can't do this?!! (Justin Bieber's legs BTW!)

Or that this guy can't do this?

How about this?

Would that be breaking the law?

UPDATE: Oh this is getting good! Here are some good ones from the comments below!

Bunch more here! Thanks AAAAANDRE

UPDATE 2:New Face Book Page: The Obaminator

UPDATE 3: Many people have wondered if the WH wanted the photo to be shared around the internet in actuality. Though clearly speculation, it is plausible considering:

Campaign Ads

I think this is mostly directed at campaign and political ads. They want the ability to sue the Republicans if they use it on campaign materials - avoiding silly ads like the one with Kerry para-sailing accusing him of flip flopping and going whichever way the wind blows.

This may have been a net for a little shock and awe operation, who knows. I know the tech is available to track everything digital these days. Would they actually go after someone to make an example of them? Who knows, but I wouldn't put it past them.

For the record though.. Fuck them either way.

"may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."

Does that mean it's ok to use the picture to suggest disapproval and non-endorsement?

Michael Nystrom's picture

Why would the Whitehouse go to the trouble of saying

"Don't mess with the picture" if they can't enforce it.

Either this is a honeypot, or they're just incredibly incompetent.

the timing seemed like incompetence

the message sounds like it's directed to their media underlings

if the goal is a honey pot then we need to make it overflow imo

Photo tagging and hacking

it's a relatively new form of tracking and hacking.

Hackers are already working on injection modes for the process.

I was thinking that too...

And I'm thinking, they can't really be THAT ignorant and out of touch, can they? Which led me to wonder maybe they really want the image spread far and wide, even if photoshopped. Maybe taking the approach with this image that any publicity is good publicity?

I don't think the picture is real

From the way he is standing to the smoke coming from the barrel it looks fake.

I KNOW it's not real

If the White House ( spokesperson, or Obomba says it's real ) then I KNOW it's not.

This photo is much easier to see fraud than his phoney birth certificate! LOL

So easy to discern!
