    This photo was used in an Australian TV game show "Good News Week" last night to illustrate a clue involving princess Leia. Not sure if they got your permission (probably not!), but anyway, thought you might like to know. You can find their page here: ten.com.au/ten/tv_gnw.html and if you want to watch the episode, it's episode 2 in the video section.
