Canadian Mint Not Happy With Musician

Dave Gunning is being asked to pay a fee for using a picture of the Canadian penny in album artwork


Halifax folk musician Dave Gunning wanted to pay tribute to the soon-to-vanish Canadian penny in song with his upcoming album No More Pennies.

But the Royal Canadian Mint was not happy about the image of the Canadian penny he is using on the album cover. It says Gunning is contravening copyright and must pay a fee.
