Lawyer's banquet

Everyone needs something to do when traveling; what I do is look for IP issues. This image of a Rolling Stones album and song name, along with the name of the Rolling Stones themselves, appears in an ad in the May 2008 issue of SkyMall. Given cases like Yeager, how much money would the makers of this iPod case have to spend to defend against a Lanham Act claim for false endorsement by the Rolling Stones? Let's not even start on the copyright claim over the album cover.
