32-year-old ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star Khloe Kardashian has just been slapped with a whopping $150,000 lawsuit by Xposure Photos UK (Ltd.)!
The youngest Kardashian sister has just been accused of posting a copyrighted paparazzi photo on her Instagram account WITHOUT permission!
The agency claims that Khloe ‘copied’ a photo they took of her and one of her sisters in Miami on September 13 2016 and then proceeded to post it to her Instagram account! Xposure Photos UK claim that the pic Khloe posted “had been altered to remove the copyright management information (CMI) showing plaintiff as the copyright owner of the image.” In official court documents the company claim that Kardashian did not “seek permission to use the photographs” and that her unauthorized use “harm[ed] the existing and future market for the original photograph.” Adding: “Kardashian uses her Instagram feed for the purposes of promotion — specifically, to promote her own business interests, products, and ventures; to promote and sell the products and services of others … Kardashian’s Instagram post made the photograph immediately available to her nearly 67 million followers and others, consumers of entertainment news — and especially news and images of Kardashian herself, as evidenced by their status as followers of Kardashian — who would otherwise be interested in viewing licensed versions of the photograph in the magazines and newspapers that are plaintiff’s customers.” Oh dear, good luck Khloe!
