Chinese real estate company, Ivy Garden was sued for using famous faces including Bill Gates, Barack Obama and Warren Buffett in their billboard advertisements.

The giant billboards featured Obama next to the quotation "The value of our success has not changed" which is a slightly altered version of what he said in his inaugual address.

The billboard with Buffett on the other hand had the quote "This is the most important investment of my life."

The 10 x 4 meter billboards remained until August 4th until the Trade and Industry Bureau of Shanxi Province noticed them and ordered them to be taken down. They also levied a 50,000 yuan fine - more than $7,000 in US dollars.
