GuidoDelConfuso: FTA: Giles doesn't buy the play-on-words defense. "It took me really, really looking through it at least two times for me to even get to that," she said.

Well, honey, that's why you're a model and not a college professor.


Glad someone else caught that.

However, she does have a point. They apparently paid her for unlimited usage for a specific model of vehicle. If they have used the image(s) in other ways or with other models she is due. Not the ridiculous amount in the lawsuit but she should have been paid.

That must be the model without the external pedestrian airbags.

And if she "fixed her flats", you'd probably be the first to gripe about the store boughts.
Seriously guys, women just can't win with you.


Sure you can!

Think Goldilocks and the Three Bears:
- this one's breasts are too small
- this one's breasts are too fake
- this one's breasts are just right!

If all she's good for is standing and looking lovely in front of a car, then she's probably just some brainless twat-waffle whose sense of self-entitlement is bigger than my dick when I see that pic of the huge breasted chick in the skin-tight blue dress sitting in the passenger seat of a car.

Women like this piss me off. Trust me, all you're good for is looking like a skank, so take your two grand and SHUT UP. You IGNORANT self-entitled car posing BIATCH. WHORE! Ass-hole. Coont!

Maybe not signing "Unlimited Use" contracts would be a good idea.

stuffy: Maybe not signing "Unlimited Use" contracts would be a good idea.


without reading the article, all I can say is that, even if the language of the contract is very expansive, parties cannot contract beyond the intent of the contract.

Not sure about the merits of this case, but the whole practice of "unlimited" use really has to stop (and models need to stop accepting it). With unlimited use they can use you as the face/image of products and organizations that are totally against your principles. Lots of people are learning this the hard way when they let their image be used as stock photos. You can end up as the poster image for KKK or something and there is nothing you can do about it.

"Sleazy"? What do you call it when you sell pictures of yourself, then sue the people who buy them?

SevenizGud: Greek: Except that the picture was showing up in ads for things completely unrelated to Volvo.

No it wasn't. The ad was showing up for things related to Volvo, but semi-disguised as being something not related to cars. For example, an ad on a dating site talking about mingling with several models [picture of biatch here].

When you read what it says, you will note that one of the models they are talking about is the Volvo S40.

Please stop posting about things you clearly have no understanding about. Or at least RTFA first.


ONE of the "offensive" ads was for the dating site, which was sponsored by Volvo. You're right about that part. But the article seems to imply that not all of them involved Volvo. (though the video, which I hadn't watched before) does.
And even still, the contract she signed stated that the picture could be used an "unlimited" number of times to promote the Volvo S40. It COULD be argued that Volvo was using the picture to promote the S40 in the dating site ad. After all, the picture is of her sitting in an S40, and it's used for promoting Volvo cars, one of which is the S40, and they're not going to use a pic of their least- expensive car to promote their more expensive models. The Hertz ad is for renting the S40, as well.

I also think she's being a bit over the top in saying the dating site ad "made her look like an escort." The ad said nothing about escorts or prostitution. It "invited you to spend an evening with 4 Swedish models." Not 4 Swedish whores, which is what the term "escort" is usually used for.

Now, could one still say that Ford Models/ Volvo were a little bit sneaky with the contract? Yeah... You could. But the contract DID explicitly say that Volvo could have UNLIMITED use of the picture to promote its S40 model, and that seems to be what Volvo is doing with it. If she didn't want the image used in certain contexts, she could have asked that that be included in the contract. As for any other, non- Volvo ads that may exist, she certainly DOES have a case.

Disclosure time: I might have a pro- Volvo bias, since I own 3 of them and I also make quite a bit of my living servicing and maintaining Volvos. I'm a mechanic who specializes in European cars, and a good portion of my business is work on Volvos.

IvanTheSilent: Ok, didn't read the article, but can we all agree on something here? We expect NSFW tags, can we get one for links with bullshiate autoplay ads that can't be stopped?


This is why I use AdBlock.

Alonjar: Im having a tough time forming an opinion here... on one hand, she kind of has a point.

On the other hand, her job is to look hot in front of cameras, so are you really that different from a sex worker?

Possibly related: really hate people who skate through life because of their looks. I dated this chick once, and took her to a club. Walking in the door, they pulled us aside and offered her a job, which she took. Working a beer cooler.. her job was to open beer bottles, and take money for them. 4 hours a night, 3 nights a week.

That biatch brought home 3x my salary doing that, not counting all the free shiat and fringe benefits she ended up getting from rich people all the time.


The worst part is that she was cheating on you too.
