More on Obama and the right of publicity
Salon story featuring a shocking array of Obama memorabilia. The lead is the best: the Obama dildo. The site, which uses a logo that's not much more different from Obama's than the new Pepsi campaign logo, calls it "the official Obama pleasure toy" and features (fake) endorsements from McCain, Palin, Bush, Cheney, and Joe the Plumber (expect the latter's lawsuit any moment now). Which just goes to show: sometimes even "official" wouldn't mislead a reasonable consumer.
