Virgin Mobile sued for using Flickr image in ad
According to The Dallas Morning News, the photo of Alison Chang flashing a peace sign had appeared in a printed ad with the caption “Dump your pen friend” and was seen in Adelaide, Australia. The Herald Sun also cited that another caption “Free virgin to virgin” was placed in a different ad.
The lawsuit includes invasion of privacy, damage to reputation, and for â€œsuffering humiliation, severe embarrassment, frustration, grief and general mental anguish damages, all of which, in reasonable probability, will subsist in the future.â€
Virgin Mobile could not be reached for comments. Two words for Virgin â€“ Paid Models! Are you with me or what?
