Astronaut Sues Dido For Album Cover

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Astronaut Bruce McCandless is suing Dido for her album cover that uses a famous NASA photograph of a tiny, tiny, tiny McCandless floating in space. McCandless doesn't own the copyright on the photo, so he's claiming it's a violation of his publicity rights... except that he's so tiny in the photo, it's not like anyone's going to recognize him."

He was floating in public space, in full view of half the planet.

And there is no such thing as publicity rights

If there was, the celebs would be suing aswell...
