David's Daughter Not Fair Dinkum

An Aboriginal man is demanding $30 million from Australia's central bank for using his uncle's image on the $50 bank note.

Allan "Chirpy" Campbell claims the bank gained permission to use the image of celebrated indigenous author and inventor David Unaipon from a woman who was posing as his daughter, and did not obtain authorisation from a genuine family member.

"They jacked this woman up and proclaimed that she is the daughter of my uncle, and when we found out they blocked us and they chucked all the barricades there," he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). [Link]
