    I'm sure we discussed this optical illusion, which went viral, here.

    Here an update and some background of how it came about which most of us probably didn't know; it is now a matter of lawsuits.

    If people were actually using their photo in advertisements, they probably have a case. I wasn't aware anyone was doing that, and the first story doesn't say what company might have done that. I'm curious who would have used it to sell what, and whether it authentically increased their revenue.
