We’ve all seen a bunch of hilarious Photoshop fails (with Vanity Fair adding extra limbs to people probably being my favorite). Khloé Kardashian recently got accused of one because of her huge feet and hands in some photos. But she was unrightfully accused – it was just a wide-angle lens distortion and she tried really hard to explain it to her followers.
For most of us, getting our photo taken for things like a drivers license or passport is something we dread. We know the photos are going to look bad. It’s just the way they are. The lighting is flat, bland, boring, horrible, and definitely doesn’t show us at our best.
When “reality star” Khloe Kardashian had to get her new drivers license, though, she didn’t want that. Oh, no. So, she took Keeping up with the Kardashians lighting director Landon Hosto along with her to get that perfect shot. I know this family’s supposed to be a bit over the top, but even this is pretty ridiculous.
I don’t normally care what the Kardashians do. This current suit being brought against Khloe Kardashian, however, highlights something rather important. It’s something often misunderstood by clients, celebrities, and the general public alike. Just because you appear in a photograph does not mean that you have the legal right to use it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “KoKo” apparently hasn’t heard this rather important fact before. It’s not uncommon knowledge that celebrities have a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi. But regardless of what you might think some of their ethical standards, their rights still stand. Including Copyright. Kardashian is being sued by UK based photo agency, Xposure Photos.
