Jennifer Lopez is being sued for copyright infringement
Jennifer Lopez is being sued for copyright infringement for posting a photo of herself taken by paparazzi to her Instagram account.
Although she is in the photo, she does not have the authorisation to use the photo and does not have ownership of the photo.
The image is a picture of Lopez holding hands with Alex Rodriguez in New York City, which the singer shared to her Instagram account in 2017
The Splash News and Picture Agency for $150,000 claim that they are the owner and exclusive copyright holder of the photo – and that Lopez did not have permission to share the picture.
It was mentioned in court documents that the “Plaintiff never licensed the photograph to the defendant,” the court documents read. “Nevertheless, Lopez used it without authorisation or permission from plaintiff to do so. The plaintiff is seeking an injunction against Lopez that would stop her and her team from posting the photo in the future.
