Video: 13-year-old autistic daughter ‘breaches Game of thrones copyright’ on artwork

Have your say

A dad told Game of Thrones makers HBO to “shove it where the sun doesn’t shine” after his 13-year-old autistic daughter breached copyright on her artwork - because she used the words ‘Winter is Coming’.

Jonathan Wilcox, 53, was left shocked after his upset daughter Felicity was delivered the “heavy-handed” email for using the slogan on her picture. The teenager’s picture was made on the computer as part of a November artwork competition which featured a purple-haired girl with the words ‘Winter is Coming’ - House Stark’s motto.
