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 have a feeling someone is going to drop the hammer on them for using that image.

I'm not a Trademark lawyer, but I don't think you can simply take any photo that happens to be in the public domain, which contains both a person's likeness and trademarked material, and utilize it for a commercial purpose such as this, without consent of that individual and consent of the owner of that trademark.

Which is why I said they may have gotten the rights to the photo from the AP or someone (on the cheap). I am guessing they have the rights to do what they want with the photo one way or another, but then again, they are a head shop so who knows?

Good ad. It's a shame they'll get sued for it.

The AP can contractually given you the right to publish a photograph it owns. They cannot, however, contractually grant one the right to use a person's image and trademarked material contained in that photo for commercial purposes, without consent of that individual and the owner of the trademark. At least, that's how I understand it.
