Pro photographer Christopher Pasatieri is suing rapper 50 Cent. The photographer took pictures of 50 at a concert and claims that the pictures were used illegally on 50 Cent’s Instagram page. Pasatieri submitted to the courts a screen shot of the Instagram posts that shows Curtis promoting his SMS Audio headphones and TV show, “Power.” Pasatieri says the rapper never licensed the photos or asked for permission to post them on IG.
Pasatieri is suing for damages. What do you guys think about this? I’m not a lawyer but it seems suspect to sue someone for using an image of them-self!
