Getting heated

I just read an article on the BBC that England’s National Portrait Gallery is mad at Wikipedia. People have apparently been uploading images from the gallery’s website, which the gallery says it owns, to Wikipedia. The disagreement has gotten so bad, according to the BBC, that it has “intensified to a war of words”. I’m pretty sure that’s the least intense an argument can be. What were they doing before? Were the two parties doing the passive-aggressive  thing and talking about each other on their LiveJournals? I mean, I’m not sure if Wikipedia had the right to upload the over 3,000 pictures from the NPG, but I like how the gallery first decided to sue Wikipedia, and then talk smack about them. Classy.
