Lip-smacking copyright suit confronts Pepsi

From the Independent: Lip-smacking copyright suit confronts Pepsi

"Lawyers acting for the estate of one of Britain's most celebrated celebrity photographers, Bob Carlos Clarke, who died last year, have picked a fight with the multinational bigwigs at Pepsi. They've decided to take legal action against the soft drinks company, claiming that their latest advert, which shows a young woman licking her lips, has directly ripped off Clarke's work The Lick/ Mouth, and are seeking hefty remuneration."

You'll see to take a look at the print edition of the paper to see the two photos but a copyright suit in licking lips?
