They say that one photo is worth a thousand words …
But in the case of Emily Rataykovski her photographs literally deserve this and then some. The 28-year-old supermodel is the latest celebrity to bash in a photo shoot she shared on social media. She and her company Emrata Holdings Inc. were sued by photographer and professional paparazzi, Robert O. Neal .
In court documents received by E! News, O & # 39; Neil has filed a lawsuit against Ratajkowski in New York City's Southern Quarter alleging copyright infringement. He claims that actress Gone Girl has not licensed her photo or obtained permission or consent to post it on her Instagram page.
He is suing up to $ 1
The photo in question is one of 28-year-old models holding a bouquet of flowers that expertly covers her face during a trip to New York.
Robert claims that the star Cruise star posted a photo to her Instagram Story, which has already expired since its initial upload. According to the suit, she shared the candid photo and captioned her publication "Mood Forever."
This is not the first time a photographer has sued a celebrity. If his name sounds familiar, it's because last month he hit Gigi Hadid with an image case he was publishing to his former friend, Zayn Malik .
"This action occurs outside the unauthorized reproduction of Defendant and the public display of a copyrighted photo by English singer and songwriter Zayn Malik, owned and registered by O & # 39; Neil, a professional photographer based in New York," reads court documents received from E! News at the time.
"Gigi Hadid is not, and is never, licensed or otherwise authorized to reproduce, publicly display, distribute and / or use the photograph" specified in the documents.
In addition, just last week Justin Bieber also faced the same problem and was tried to share an idea of himself to which he does not own the rights. The pop star, however, took to social media to say he made peace with the photographer, Robert Barbera .
"Photo taken by @papculture!" Bieber has posted on Instagram in a post ever since. "Stop all the fuss we've worked with! He's a good dude !!!!! What do you think, an album and another tour?"
At that time, Emily was still not publicly involved in the case. E! News contact the comment model team.
