Dua Lipa sued for posting photo of herself on Instagram

Recommended Posts


Dua Lipa is facing legal action after allegedly sharing a paparazzi-snapped photo of herself to Instagram, Billboard has learned.

In an eight-page copyright infringement complaint filed by attorney Craig Sanders in U.S. District Court in California on Tuesday, the pop star is accused of sharing a photo owned by Integral Images to her personal Instagram account in February 2019 “without permission or authorization.” The company backs up its case against the singer by noting that Lipa uses her Instagram account as a marketing tool to earn additional revenue.

“The Account is monetized in that it contains content designed to accumulate followers who are directed to, via link and/or advertisement, consume and purchase Defendant’s content, Defendant profits from these activities,” the complaint reads.

Integral Images is seeking $150,000 in damages or, alternatively, “an award of actual damages and disgorgement of all of Defendant's profits attributable to the infringements,” whichever is larger. It is additionally asking for an order enjoining Dua Lipa from further acts of infringement, as well as litigation costs and attorney’s fees.

A screen grab of Lipa’s alleged use of the photo, which shows the star standing in line at an airport while wearing an oversize hat, is included as an exhibit with the complaint. Integrated Images claims the photo was taken just a few days before Lipa posted it to her account with the caption, "I'll be living under big fluffy hats until further notice."

These paps are getting brave  

$150,000 in damages... Lol you have to laugh, as if the use of that photo done anything to their irrelevant unknown company. 

I guess they're no longer her biggest fan and she never loved them
