Fake Celebrity endorsements Strike Again!

I was shopping for beds and mattresses today and I went into a few Chinese furniture stores. I looked at a mattress and looked at the tag on it. It was a picture of a girl laying on a bed and I thought it looked so familiar. I took a closer look and realized it was Britney! I'm 99.9% sure that Britney's not endorsing mattresses. They were mattresses made in Hong Kong/China. I just thought it's so funny! Here's the pic I took.

Depends on national copy right laws.

Unlike in Mainland CHina, there are plenty in Hong Kong, so I'm actually really surprised by this.

Not really. For the most part, the rights to use photos of people belong to the photographer, not the subject. Unless there was a contract specifically stating that the subject (or someone else) owned the photos, the photographer can sell them to whomever they want. That's why paparazzi make so much money.

That makes me think of the Spanish Olympic team that pulled at the corners of their eyes to make them all slanty as a promo for the Olympics.

Eh, she could be. Don't a lot of celebs endorse products in foreign countries?

Ha Ha. Wow these companies are going to get some bad lawsuits as soon as celebrities start finding out about this.

lingail140 13th-Aug-2008 05:04 pm (UTC)
I have a feeling that a lot of these are due to small print in the contracts of these various celebrities.
franknberry 13th-Aug-2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
