Careful with that Stock Footage

I've shied away from posting stuff about the elections on this here blog, but I think this is really funny. The little girl in the Hillary Clinton ad who will surely die if Obama becomes president is now (almost) all growed up and is campaigning for Obama.

I also like the idea of the Clinton campaign using footage from a ten-year-old railroad commercial in a political ad.

This is also an interesting right of publicity issue, of sorts. The girl obviously lost all control over the use of her image once the commercial was in the can and sold to Getty Images. You never know what nefarious use your likeness will be put to once your mug is part of stock material.
