    The skill of observation is one that one keeps. ;-)

    The reason the campaign was pulled is that Dwight Howard is no longer
    a Magic player. After a long and acrimonious period of Howard
    shilly-shallying about whether or not he'd remain with the Magic or
    demand to be traded, he opted for the trade. He's now a Laker.

    Howard is not liked in Orlando anymore.

    In this day and age that doesn't mean a thing, what with the number of photos that are altered using photoshop or other software. So even if
    she is shown wearing that jersey, it does NOT mean that at the game she was wearing that jersey. And if she was wearing the jersey, it still
    doesn't mean she is a fan of the team. She might like a specific player while NOT liking the team.

    OK! You got me!
    She was actually naked, and team neutral when they got the shot. The
    Howard jersey was just PSed on her.

    Actually, the photo is of Dwight Howard. It's the face that was
    photoshopped in.

  6. Well, yes and no. Nobody asks models being hired to appear in ad
    campaigns their attitudes towards the product being advertised. Picking
    a face out of the crowd is different from hiring a model, but if we're
    going to allow it, then maybe it becomes the same for this purpose.

    On the other hand, in some cities she could argue that it made her
    unsafe to be portrayed as a fan of the wrong team :).

  7. Clearly that's possible.

    However, any claim for damages for being portrayed as a fan of the team
    seems to me to evaporate in this case -- she's really wearing the
    jersey. It may mean whatever she wants *to her*, but everybody else is
    going to think she's a fan of the team.

    My daughter's dog appears in commercials. If she doesn't approve of the
    product, the gig will be refused.

    That's a rather ambiguous use of "she". Who must approve of the
    product? The dog or your daughter?

    Are you assuming the dawg is a female?
    However, the answer is both. But this dawg doesn't refuse food.
