Gigi Hadid is sued for sharing her own picture
LAHORE - Supermodel Gigi Hadid is being sued by a photography agency under copyright issue after posting a picture of herself on Instagram, reported Buzzfeed.

Gigi Hadid is a top model who is active on social media and is followed by many who look up to her style statements.

The 23-year-old model has walked on runway after runway and showed off her expertise in a number of campaigns and fashion shows.

“The photographer owns the copyright to the photograph; it doesn’t matter who is in it,” entertainment lawyer Bryan Sullivan told BuzzFeed News. “The subject of the photo doesn’t have any rights to the picture as long as it was taken in a public place.”

According to the suit, “Hadid had first-hand knowledge that copying and posting photographs, of herself or other subject matters, to her Instagram or other social media accounts that she did not properly license or otherwise receive permission from the copyright holder constituted copyright infringement.”

The agency "is informed and believes Hadid, without the permission or consent of Xclusive, copied and used a copyrighted photograph on her Instagram account. In doing so, she violated the exclusive rights of reproduction and distribution.”

“Her actions constitute infringement of the copyright and exclusive rights. Xclusive is informed and believes that the foregoing act of infringement was willful and intentional, in disregard of and with indifference to the rights of the company.”

“Most, if not all, of these photographs were posted by Hadid without license or permission from the copyright holder,” the agency said.
