Maybe they asked and someone with a Speak and Spell pretended to be him.

"Can we use your picture in our ad, Mr. Hawking?"
"Yes... You... Can."

only fair that he be told.... jeez & I'm not even a lawyer:

Your email regarding "Intellectual Property/Personality Rights - Potential Infringement" has been received.

Professor Hawking very much regrets that due to the severe limitations he works under, and the huge amount of mail he receives, he may not have time to write you a reply.

Have you ever seen the episode of the simpsons with Stephen Hawking?

I am pretty sure the guy still has a healthy sense of humour.

you guys seriously need to relax. First giving them shit about Che and now Hawkings? Let them worry about that, I for one enjoy the ads. It's something different. Man, now I know why I come here less and less, who needs all this negativity, even about minor issues. Everytime I come here I feel like I read a bunch of posts from old ladies bitchin about their meds and hemoroids.

It is my understanding that you can use copyrighted materials like that if it a humerous parody. Like when penthouse did a parody a a compari add with jerry fallwell in it. Because it was considered a parody or humorous it is allowed by the first amendment right to free speach. Of course i am not a lawyer so I may be mistaken.

harken its just the pimps putting down other brands, please just pimp your gear and stop the bashing.

wind wing has some good stuff and is a good deal.

I bet if Naish or Cab did a ad with hitler in it that would be cool :-?

yeh, but look at this way, here's a guy who needs very expensive multi person 24 hour care, and is going to need that care for the rest of his life.


seems a bit tight to use him for a money making advert without asking...


but then again, maybe they did ask... anyone stop to ask windwing, or are we all too keen on the scandal to let a little something like the truth get in the way of a good story.
