Photographer sued Steven Spielberg

An interesting legal debate started when Steven Spielberg (employees) didn’t allow a photographer to take paparazzi photos of a movie shooting on the streets of New York. Security guards did everything they could to prevent photographing the movie shooting. They installed blockades, canvases, privacy screens and held umbrellas in front of the photographer to block his view. Photographer in return sued the movie company for infringing First amendment rights as New York streets are private property and it is part of freedom of speech to take photos of things happening on the streets.

Stars and fans sued by paparazzis

More and more news are coming about stars getting sued by paparazzis for infringing their copyrights and a series of fan pages being deleted by social media sites for the very same reason.

Photographers in the mean time have a hard time accepting these rip off so they go into court against world famous people as well – and they win these cases too. As an end result however after getting burned themselves celebrities started to educate their followers too.
