Harding Protests Use of Photo in Ad: A potential legal brawl has emerged in New York over the use of Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding's photo in a pun-filled newspaper ad for two music bargain stores. But her lawyers pointed out that Harding, under investigation in the Jan. 6 attack on Nancy Kerrigan, has not authorized commercial use of her name or likeness.

The photo of Harding adjoins a cartoon balloon that suggests she is saying, "Unbeatable bargains that will bring you to your knees. . . ."
