Justin Bieber is the latest star to fall victim to a lawsuit after posting a picture of himself on Instagram.
According to The Blast, Robert Barbera, is suing Bieber for copyright infringement and that he makes his living by licensing his photographs to online and print media.
The court documents show that Barbera took a snap of Bieber and copyrighted the pic. He claims Bieber posted it on Instagram without permission.
”Defendants ran the Photograph on the Website. The Website received 3,905,147 likes. Defendants did not license the Photograph from Plaintiff for its Website, nor did Defendants have Plaintiff’s permission or consent to publish the Photograph on its Website.”
The image in question is one that Bieber posted to his Instagram on March 13, where he is in a car with his friend, Rich Wilkerson.
Barbera is seeking unspecified monetary damages.
