Popular British singer Dua Lipa was put on trial for her own photo.
According to the BBC , the photo agency Integral Images filed a lawsuit against the 25-year-old singer. So, the star, allegedly without permission, posted on Instagram her own photo, which was taken by the paparazzi, and thus violated copyright.
According to court documents, the performer was removed from the queue at the airport in February 2019. This picture appeared in Lipa’s feed 4 days later. The photo agency claims that she made a profit from posts on her photoblog, since her account is monetized, therefore she is demanding compensation in the amount of $ 150,000.
In addition, Dua must reimburse the legal costs. The photo agency also asks the court to accept the order, which will not allow the artist to violate his rights anymore.
