Jennifer Lopez is being sued for copyright infringement by photo agency Splash News over a picture she posted of herself and fiance Alex Rodgriguez on Instagram. According to The Blast and E! News, court docs say that Splash News and Picture Agency are suing the actress and singer for $150,000 and they have claimed that they are the owners and the exclusive copyright holders of the photo she shared in an Instagram Story two years back.
The photo features JLo and A-Rod out in NYC, holding hands.
The docs say that “Specifically, Lopez or someone acting on her behalf copied the Photograph and distributed it on Instagram, via the @jlo account, on a story posted November 7, 2017."
The photo agency continued, “This is an action for copyright infringement brought by plaintiff, the holder of the copyright to the photograph described below, against defendant for use of plaintiff’s photograph without authorization or permission."
The photo agency claimed in the docs that Lopez had been notified of her infringment in a letter to her representative date December 12, 2017.
In addition to the $150,000, Splash News and Picture Agency are seeking an injunction against Lopez and her team to stop them from posting the photo in the future.
