All The Birds Will Be Singin'

Willie Nelson, "flipping the bird" (i.e., giving his middle finger) in a photograph, is the center of a copyright infringement suit filed in Sacramento. Spencer's Gifts, of shopping-mall fame, has been selling T-Shirts at its physical outlets and online that have a copyrighted image of Nelson imposed thereon. (Article at MSNBC).

Does W. Nelson have any claims of his own? Privacy, name and likeness etc?
