Morrissey donates Channel 4 payout to Peta campaign against foie gras

Morrissey has donated £10,000 paid by Channel 4 for the unauthorised use of a Smiths song to fund a campaign attacking Fortnum & Mason for selling foie gras.

Channel 4 failed to ask Morrissey's permission to use the Smiths song Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want when promoting the Gordon Ramsay's Christmas Cookalong Live show in 2011.

The broadcaster is understood to have paid £10,000 to Morrissey in recognition of its error, and he has donated the money to the animal rights charity People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta).

Peta is using the £10,000 to buy advertising space for its new campaign criticising Fortnum & Mason.
