Brady files lawsuit against Yahoo!

Postby Double Play Ball » Thu Dec 07, 2006 3:53 pm

Tom Brady has filed a lawsuit against Yahoo for their use of his image and likeness in fantasy football advertisements both in print and online.
In late summer, Yahoo ran a fantasy football print ad in Sports Illustrated with the images of Randy Moss, LaDainian Tomlinson, Jeremy Shockey, Steve Smith, Larry Johnson and Tom Brady. Since Yahoo has a fantasy football license from the NFLPA and the NFLPA holds licensing rights wherever six or more players are used, we aren't sure how Brady has much of a case

He could pull one out of Latrell Sprewells book.

He needs to feed his family.

Why did they need to point out in the lawsuit that he led his team to 3 Super Bowl chamionships?

I don't see how Brady has much grounds here, I mean they have permission don't they?
