Model Sues Volvo For Selling Her Photos To An Escort Service

This is scandalous in so many ways!

Carolyn Giles, a model with a decade long career, is suing Volvo, Hertz and her modeling agency, Ford Models for $23 million, after her image was licensed out out to other companies for use — like an escort service in down under!

According to Giles, the photo was exclusively taken for the advertising of Volvo's S40 model car, but then turned up in an ad for an Australian dating website, that labeled her as a "Swedish escort." Naturally, Giles has been going bananas since.

What makes matters worse is that the same photograph also appeared in an abundance of ads for all types of products in at least 25 different countries, but according to the model, it was only supposed to appear for the S40 car.

Volvo, however, is stating that Carolyn signed a release granting rights for "unlimited print and Internet placements worldwide for an unlimited time."

Damn. That's really unfortunate.

Hopefully, Carolyn is able to win this battle; what Volvo did was deceitful and underhanded … and totally just to make money!
