We’ve seen celebrities getting sued (and banned from Instagram) for copyright infringement. After Bruno Mars, Brian May, and Gigi Hadid, now it happened to Sir Rod Stewart. Only this time, the legendary singer is being sued for using a photo as a gig backdrop, and not for posting it to Instagram. And the weird thing is: the photographer who filed the lawsuit didn’t even take the photo.
One of the most intriguing photo-related copyright infringement lawsuits in recent years has been put on hold due to a bankruptcy protection request.
Rod Stewart and the other defendants have avoided an appearance in court, for the time being, following Caesars Palace filing for Chapter 11 earlier this month.
