That's why I was confused. I thought there was an objection to CNN using
a photo they'd taken themselves, for which they would own the copyright.
(For instance, if you pay a professional to photograph your wedding, the
photographer holds the copyright unless you negotiate a contract stating

Given that they vigorously protect their own copyrights, I'm surprised
that they would steal someone else's. Maybe they were (incorrectly)
confident that noone would notice.
