    I won't be posting a photo :) but sports icon Michael Jordan has just been awarded $8.9 million damages against the supermarket chain Dominicks, which used an image of him in an ad it placed in a special 2009 edition of Sports Illustrated magazine, issued to mark his entry into the Hall of Fame.

    Dominicks, which is now closed but is owned by Safeway, had offered $126,900. Jordan apparently beamed at his lawyer when the verdict was announced.

    Jordan says it's not about the money as he intends to give that to charity. He just doesn't want his image used without his permission, to advertize things.
