Jennifer Lopez sued for $ 150,000 for posting a picture of herself on her Instagram account. The rights to the picture belong to the Splash New picture agency, and Jennifer did not have the permission to use this photo.
The photo was taken almost 3 years ago when photographers spotted Lopez on a walk with Alex Rodriguez. According to representatives of the agency, it was a rare and creative shot, and by posting it on her network, Jennifer deprived the agency of profit.
It is also interesting that, according to copyright law, the presence of Lopez on the photo does not allow her to use the picture without a license, so the agency has every chance of recovering the requested amount from Jay Lo.
Jennifer Lopez is not the only celebrity who faced a similar problem. For example, Kim Kardashian had to hire his own photographer so that her fans could easily use celebrity`s pictures. “All of my pics are taken by my own photog and you guys can always repost whatever you want” Kim said to her fans.
