Novelty Company Sues Microsoft Over Windows Phone 7 Ads


From PCWorld:
Ad Age reports that the Florida-based gag gift company Cellrderm is suing Microsoft and Microsoft's ad firm Crispin Porter + Bogusky over the ads, saying that the ads violated copyrighted creative content. Cellderm sells a gag gift called Cellderm, a tongue-in-cheek product for "cell phone abuse intervention" that will get people over the obsessions with their cell phones.

Cellderm created two low-budget ads for its product, one of which shows a man in a bedroom ignoring a lingerie-clad woman dancing suggestively, and another shows many men in a bathroom, using their cell phones at urinals. One of them drops a phone into a urinal. You can see both ads, below.
