re: Phoenix head shop welcomes Tyrann


they could have used the same colors and just gotten a pic of Tyrann without the LSU logo and been fine....

....very funny ad, but they may pay for it

I can tell you that LSU retains the right to any AP photo, they hold joint copyright. In addition, if the photo is used in a way that is degraging to the brand, they have every right to pursue legal action,.

We're all making assumptions here, but my guess is a head shop didn't go to the trouble to buy the rights from the AP or LSU.

Probably not, and it looks like my theory has been debunked by people here that actually know about these things. I was just guessing.

If they were writing a news article or something but you can't use a college or persons image for promotions just because you buy the rights to a photo or else endorsement deals as we know them wouldn't exist.

This shows me it's time for HB to show what he's made of.

Good luck HB.

God forbid you make a tshirt of your own design that has some LSU stuff on it and the printshop shuts you down but a head shop can go balls deep in copywrite and probably not pay a penny.

I'm guessing that is an AP photo they bought the rights to, or a copyright free photo. Not much LSU or anyone can likely do if they've legally obtained the rights to the photo.


I doubt it. I'd bet someone with no sense simply Googled this image and used it.

re: Phoenix head shop welcomes Tyrann


If it wasn't involving LSU...say he went to a totally different college and got into the same kind of trouble....would you still think it was messed up?
