They are accusing the two audio-visual companies of "prominently [using] large photographs" of them for marketing in "print advertisements published in numerous magazines over the past several months" without their permission.

The two stars are seeking an injunction against further use of their names or images, attorneys fees, punitive damages, unspecified compensatory damages and treble damages.
