Add another to the overreaching trademark annals

Seattle Trademark Lawyer reports that Car-Freshner has sued Getty Images for licensing for commercial use photos that include Car-Freshner's car deodorant products in the frame. Not that I don't think the claim is ridiculous, but (like the keyword cases) wouldn't the claim be better if it were for contributory infringement? I wonder if anyone's actually used these in an ad.
