Scottish Courage remains defiant in the face of legal threats over one of its latest ads for Newcastle Brown, and is placing it in adult comic Viz. Fashion house Yves St Laurent objected to the ad, in which a man parodies the sexy pose of model Sophie Dahl in an execution for Opium. YSL says Sophie's position is its intellectual property, but Scottish Courage does not believe it is infringing the copyright, and will continue to run the ad. It will appear on the outside back cover of Viz. Scottish Courage marketing director Brian Sharp said: "Just as our Newcastle Brown ad sends up the world of fashion, this issue of Viz pokes fun at the armchair health freaks who buy a health magazine in the belief it will put them on the road to fitness after the excesses of Christmas." {{DRINKS }}
