Reese Witherspoon is a little preoccupied witherface -- because she just sued a jewelry company for using her mug in its ads.

Reese filed the lawsuit against Marketing Advantages International -- which runs the jewelry website Emitations.com -- claiming it exploited her name and face to sell jewelry and other stuff, including a knockoff of her engagement ring.

The deal breaker ... Reese insists she never gave the company permission to use her to hawk its wares.

She's suing for lots of dough ... it's just beyond.

I worked for this company and not only are they making money off celebrity images that are unauthorized they're making it off celebrities that are no longer with us such as princess Diana. There biggest seller which they get for 3$ and sell for 70. Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and manymote. Another bigger sreller of there's is the Angelina Jolie eating which ID nothing like the one she wears this items sells on their site for over 100$ and cost them roughly 6-7$ the jewelry is low quality made in china. They were sued a couple tears back for using twughlight imagery to sell their cheap goods. I left after witnessing employees drinking on site, stealing jewelry, using customer information to send spam, auditing and noticing none of their numbers added up. I brought this to the owner Auction Mai and she did nothing but make my life hell. She's praised by yahoo for sales yet she uses celebrity imagery she has no copywriter too. She also rips off the public with these cheap low quality items that are bit usually even low grade silver. Reese witherspoons emitation ring could be sold as a cracker jack prize its not even close. I am glad someone is finally standing up to this unethical company since any time an employee does nothing is done. They rely on celebrity obsessed consumers with no real knowledge of quality and rip them off. The fact that they're featured in such publications as instyle, people, Oprah, and more with out any of those pu locations checking if they have rights to images seems like complete neglect. Reese shut them.down. I have emails and other proof if needded. If you want to call and let them know how unethical they arecall 18005625002
