How does the paparazzi stay in business?

You can take someone's picture and put it in a news story. But you can't use a celebrity's picture as your logo or corporate mascot or some other commercial purpose without their permission.

Using Paris or Britney's pictures or names in a political ad would seem to fall into the latter category.
