It sounds to me like the image was used, but not exactly "copied." Kind of
reminds me of "sampling" issues in music. Did the ad just feature the face,
like the student did? Is this called appropriation? Was there a reason or
statement being made? What was the ad about? How do you feel about
Warhol's soup cans? This is a highly debatable topic. <BIG grin>
