Recent reports on the internet show that the cover photo of Led Zeppelin’s 5th studio album “Houses of The Holy”, released in 1973, was blocked by Facebook.
A spokesperson told to UCR:
“As our community standards explain, we don’t allow nude images of children on Facebook. But we know this a culturally significant image.
Therefore, we’re restoring the posts we removed.”
Here is the whole story:
“UCR posted the Houses of the Holy cover on Wednesday and received a take-down notice the next day. The same image had been used as featured art more than 30 times over the years without incident.
“But this time, according to the Facebook notice, the post was ‘flagged by other members of the community. As a result, the content will likely be removed in the next couple of hours for policy reasons.'”
The cover of the 1973 album, Houses of The Holy was designed by Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, the collective that became renowned for its cover designs for Pink Floyd, 10cc and other famous bands.
