Woody Allen has settled a lawsuit against American Apparel for $5 Million.  The suit was over two unauthorized billboards for American Apparel in New York and Los Angeles, in May of 2007.   The billboards depicted Woody Allen as an Orthodox Jew in a still photo taken from his movie Annie Hall, along with Yiddish text declaring Allen “the High Rabbi.”  This website, http://www.RightOfPublicity.com, is referenced in Business Week’s ( http://www.BusinessWeek.com ) coverage of the suit.  Another interesting aspect of this situation is that the settlement is being reported and publicized.  It is often difficult to ascertain the monetary aspects of a dispute without direct involvement.
