Maxim Attacks Over Megan Fox's Image

8/26/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nobody accuses Megan Fox of being some skanky nightclub posterchild and gets away with it ... especially when the skanky photo on the poster belongs to Maxim Magazine.

Megan Fox's Image

A ridiculously hot photo of Fox in a cleavage-exposing, micro-skirt appeared on a flyer advertising a club in Milwaukee. Problem is, the pic came right off the cover of a July issue of Maxim -- and the club didn't ask for permission before they took the image.

Now, Maxim is launching a legal attack on the club, saying they're "infringing on Maxim trademarks and copyrights and must immediately cease and desist from using the photograph (or any other Maxim material) from any of their flyers or other advertising material."

To the club's credit, they did flip the image 180 degrees -- making it that much harder to figure out where they stole it from.

I have no idea why this girl is "hot". She is just average. She has no body (flat as board, turn her sideways and you won't find her), and her face is just average( please don't scrape off the makeup, im sure we would all be scared). There is nothing special about this one. Reminds me of Heidi something or rather.

Blah

I wonder Fox feels about her image being used to promote a club she has nothing to do with? So, not only did the club illegally use a copyrighted image, they implied some kind of endorsement on Fox's behalf. What a bunch of freakin idiots.

they could of at least changed SOMETHING on the pic before putting her image on the freakin flyer from another publication. do these idiots not have attorneys/advisors to tell them that using another publication's image is not the right thing to do? they can't even get the party started because of their stupidity.

I live in Milwaukee, WI and totally agree. The photo should not be used and my perspective in the entertainment/modeling biz...I would want my permission first and get paid for it.

Theres another club in Milwaukee, I believe Notte that used a photo of Christina Aguilera for a black n white party that of course she never appeared to be there, just on the advertisement. I bet you any money they never asked permission for that photo to be used!
