    Jessie Du wins Doodle4Google. Google removes Aboriginal flag over copyright(sic) issues. People get pissed.


  2. Uhm, all I know is that this is the winning entry for the Doodle4Google competition in Australia. Shown on 26 Jan.

    The winning design to create a special Google logo for Australia Day used the yellow circle from the Aboriginal flag as the second O , which is still under copyright , so had to be removed .


  4. All the controversy regarding the the use of Aboriginal Flag(which is still under copyright) in the Aussie Day Google doodle

    Australia Day Google doodle winning entry by a certain 11 year old. But Google deleted the Aboriginal flag from the image saying the flag is ‘copyright imagery’


  6. Poornima

    Australia-themed version of the Google logo designed by student Jessie Du. One feature of her original design is absent – the Aboriginal flag.The editing of Jessie’s design was due to a copyright dispute.

    Google had to remove the aboriginal flag from its homepage logo created for Australia day as the copyright owner denied them permission

    The Google Doodle chosen for Australia Day this year ended up removing the black and red Aboriginal flag in its final version because of copyright issues.

    (And ‘happy republic day’ is not a thing!)

    The top picture is the original google doodle designed by 11 year old Jessie Du. However the doodle finally shown on the google Australia’s homepaged did not have the aboriginal flag. Google has explained the omission on basis of some copyright issues.

    doodle 4 google Australia Day logo by Jessie Du. missing the Aboriginal flag

    Google’s Dennis Hwang picked Jessie Du from Rydalmere East Public School, Sydney NSW, as the winner for google doodle to commemorate Australia Day in 2010

    The winning design in a competition to create a special Google logo for Australia Day used the yellow circle from the Aboriginal flag as the second O:.

    And that’s where the problem started.

    The Aboriginal flag – recognised under Australian law as one of the flags of Australia – was first used in the early 1970s and so is still under copyright. Harold Thomas was recognised as the author of the flag in 1997. Thomas declined Google’s request for permission to use the flag without paying a royalty, and his position didn’t change when offered “a pittance”.

    Interestingly, no permission is required to fly the Aboriginal flag, which is manufactured under licence.

    Australia Day doodle. The aboriginal flag missing from the original doodle because Google wouldnt pay royalty to the designer of the flag.

    the australian aborigine flag apparently is copyright-ed property, and google couldn’t come to suitable terms upon negotiations with the copyright owner. hence removed.

    The winning design in a competition to create a special Google logo for Australia Day used the Aboriginal Australian flag. But the Aboriginal flag is still under copyright. So, they modified it.

    google.com.au had to have the Aboriginal flag removed from their prize-winning Australia day doodle entry because the Aboriginal elder with the copyright wouldn’t let them use it.

    The 1/26/10 Google Doodle for Australia celebrating Australia Day.
    Upper version is the original winning entry and the lower is the one actually displayed due to the jerk who owns the copyright on the Aboriginal flag image.

    Will the scoring for the 12/29-12/31 period be worked out? I only ask because I think I’m coming up on 100.
    It looks like there are 3 puzzles for the period (though 2 have 12/30 as a date and 1 of those has been scored.), but there are only 2 available slots to put them (869 and 870).


  25. Missing Aboriginal flag

    Also… I don’t understand why 1/3/10 (Vrooom) is wrong.


  27. Inglourious

    GOOGLE marks Australia Day with a schoolgirl’s design, but deletes the Aboriginal flag from her image because the copyright of the Aboriginal flag design belongs to Australian artist Harold Thomas.

    Australia-themed version of the Google logo with Australia’s native animals, such as the kangaroo, koala and emu with the Aboriginal flag designed by a 11 yr student Jessie Du.

    After version without the flag as the designer of the flag refused to give Google permission to reproduce the design on its website
