Seven pulls Michael Usher promo after Nine complaint

2016-10-14_2303

Seven has been forced to pull a promo featuring new recruit Michael Usher after a legal letter from Nine claiming copyright breach.

The Daily Telegraph reports the promo showed the former 60 Minutes reporter in Baghdad, Brussels and Egypt.

But Nine claimed they had a Seven logo on Nine footage, without attribution, and gave the impression Usher’s ‘26 years’ experience’ was with Seven News.

Seven confirmed it replaced the vision.

Michael Usher began reading Seven News in Sydney yesterday.
