According to our PixID Image Monitoring Service, the Mona Lisa is one of the most used and abused images in print advertising today. Just using our image recognition technology, we compared millions of images against our growing collection of scanned print magazines and newspapers. The results were astounding – Mona Lisa really gets around.
