Well, I agree. It should fall under 'fair use'. But Corbis sent Jim Robinson
a letter complaining about us posting their copyrighted pics on FR.
They were threatening big time legal action if we didn't stop.

Don't worry... the ads are not being hosted on FR... Jim has nothing to worrk about.
It's unlikely, but I HOPE this Corbis guy sues me -- I'm a Copyright and Trademarks ACE in law school -- and the publicity would be sufficient to get the ad on the air!

I know, but there's a big leap between sending a letter and filing a lawsuit.
