This is the kind of thing that keeps lawyers in Porsches. See, you can't protect an idea, but you can the execution. When it gets a bit murky like this, that means if someone sues, it will be a...

I'm pretty sure the artists never actually brought legal action about Cog. Threatened, but not acted on. Don't know why, but I'm guessing some money changed hands.

Btw, there is always...

Oh holy crap... they didn't even try to differentiate. Totally wrong and incredibly sloppy of the agency. Clearly they knew they should have contacted the artist and that shows willful...

I wanna see the "talent" releases. If they were buried in some sort of paperwork to take the test drive, then there is a question of the validity of the releases...

Trademark infringement. Seriously, in the US, you could probably get a cease and desist for his use of your name w/o permission particularly as it is causing confusion in the very community in...

I'm a woman and I think absolutely the opposite, Holger. Seriously. I loved the biker-hair ad when I saw it a few weeks ago and even rewound it (DVRed) to show my husband. The Sunsilk spot was...

I think you're missing her point...this is a BAD thing, this Zooppa site. It exploits creatives!

I like the idea of showing more and more "real" women in ads. I do wish, in this case, they had shot them better. It's just not a very good image and that takes away from the positive statement...

There's also the whole Earthlink campaign with the ogres and fairies, etc., that is very similar. In its case, it's terribly lame, though. But then again, I don't think these ads above are...
