Jennifer Lopez gets a $ 150,000 Instagram photo case

REQUEST FOR 150 THOUSAND DOLLARS

Jennifer Lopez was sued for a photo she used on Instagram. American photographer Steve Sands demanded $ 150,000 in compensation, accusing the famous singer and production company Nuyorican Productions for copyright infringement.

 

In the case, Sands stated that he used the photo he took to ‘promote their brand’ in Lopez’s Instagram account, which has more than 119 million followers, and without paying any royalties.

 

This photo of Sands, which Lopez shared on Instagram on June 22, 2017, received 656 thousand likes.

 

The lawyer of the photographer stated that the photographer had the right to receive legal compensation up to $ 150,000 for the violated work, using the statement “The defendants did not license the photograph for use on the internet and did not have the permission or consent to publish the photograph from the plaintiff on the website.”

 

“CASE FOR CELEBRITIES”

About the case at the federal court in Manhattan, E! Speaking to the news, lawyer Richard Liebowitz said, “This is an example of celebrities using photographs on social media without permission. The number of likes received by the social media followers of the photograph is a tool for the commercialization of the posts.

 

AGAINST SIMILAR CASES ARE OPENED

Lopez was sued in October 2019 for the Alex Rodriguez photo she used in her Instagram story in 2017. Splash News and Picture Agency filed a 150,000 dollar suit for the singer.

 

Earlier this year, Lopez and the production company encountered a $ 40 million copyright lawsuit on the artist’s Hustlers movie for unauthorized use of the image of Samantha Barbash.
