Kim Kardashian Sued For Posting Her Own Picture Publicly Without Taking Permission Of The Photographer

A photographer on 22 January, 2020 filed a case against Kim Kardashian in a New York federal court. The case has been filed as the Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s star allegedly posted a picture taken by the photographer without taking his permission. The picture shows her and her husband, Kanye West walking together.

Saeed Bolden, the photographer, claims that he snapped and owns the copyright to a photo of the couple that the star posted on her Instagram page in October 2018. In the picture, both stars are smiling as they walk together with a group of people.

The U.S. Copyright Office shows that last year, Saeed registered a copyright for an image of Kim that he took in 2018. Kim had used a black and white version of the image clicked by Bolden and the post had received 2.2 million likes, according to the lawsuit.

Saeed claims in his filing that the reality star “did not license the photograph” from him for her page, nor took his “permission or consent to publish the photograph,” and infringed his copyright in the photograph by reproducing and publicly displaying it. He has further contended that this has been “willful, intentional, and purposeful, in disregard of and indifference” to his rights. He has demanded a jury trial and has not put monetary value in his lawsuit.

The lawsuit also names Skims body, Kim’s shape wear line, as a plaintiff although the picture was posted on her personal account.
