From MyDD via AmericaBlog:

Letter on behalf of the couple used in the USA Next anti-AARP ad (the green check mark) informing Charles Jarvis that he has until tomorrow to respond on their use of the image without permission.

It appears your intended but illogical point is that the AARP is anti-military and pro-gay marriage and therefore the AARP is not credible on the issue of Social Security reform. [...]

USA Next has no right to use our clients as targets for those who choose homophobia as the weapon of choice.

Clock is ticking.

USANext already removed that advertisement. It was simply meant as a "shot across the bow" and to gain publicity for their organization. It seems to have succeeded in that respect.

Thank heaven! I had been practically begging these guys to consult an attorney over at DKos. I'm glad to see they have - and a very respected and well-known firm, to boot. That Proskauer Rose even took on this case in any capacity suggests to me that there may be some serious claims here, as I had hypothesized.
