Mermaid Rides Bike,

But Only for a Price

9/27/2008 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Daryl HannahDaryl Hannah is green with anger, claiming a hybrid electric bicycle company is using her fins to cash in.

TMZ obtained a lawsuit, filed by Hannah yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, in which she claims the maker of a bike called Izip used her name and photo to promote the product on its website and catalog. The photo shows Hannah riding one of the bikes.

We kinda like this part of the suit: "Plaintiff will not voluntarily appear in print or other media unless she carefully selects and believes in the product, and unless the compensation she received is commensurate with the value of the exploitation..." In other words, everything has a price.

She's suing Currie Acquisition LLC for more than a mil.

Ooooo Noooo!    

Lets get this straight: she is not a slut -- she's a whore. A slut gives it away -- a whore has a price. Showing a picture of her using their product without paying is like some guy copping a cheap feel in a crowded bar. You want to play? Then you have to pay. But a million dollars? Honey, even NUDE on that stupid bike is NOT worth a million bucks. LOL

Of course she should be paid for endorsements. Its her JOB. She deserves compensation. You make it sound so greedy to want to be paid for you job.

Yeah, so what? Isn't that just business? You want to use her likeness, you pay her and she has to agree to it.
I'm not sure what you are criticizing? Are you criticizing the American way?

Good God, hadn't realized she was one of the butchered face brigade. They all look alike! What a shame, she was a beauty.

Who is stupid enough to use a washed up unrecognised face from the 80's to promote a modern product?
OH , they thought they could get away with it because she is so forgotten.
Somewhere in the third world are still fans.

um there is no reason she should NOT be compensated. i'm sure TMZ will remove this but just because she's a green conservationist doesn't mean she's bad!
