Suing for a Picture

In a world where lawsuits are everyday occurences over miniscule events…this is pretty funny. 

The French President, Sarkozy, and his girlfriend are suing an Irish airline for using a picture of them in an advertisement without their consent.  His girlfriend is a former model, and is suing for 500,000 euros in damages (it’s the standard price for one of her pictures).  The president is suing for a whopping 1 euro.  Count it, 1 euro. 

Let’s just say that I like this guy.  If I was French, I’d have voted for him.  He’s funny.  Vive la France!
