Copyright and personal rights aspects are also interesting and important in this story the Hungarian State Opera House got into drawing photo theft accusations.
The Brazil resident Turkish face of their newest campaign  accuses them with unauthorised use of her image. The institute defends itself claiming they have the permission to use the photo from a stock site. The situation is however more complex and unclear.
