Dua Lipa sued for posting paparazzi photo on Instagram

The New Rules singer is being sued for copyright infringement by New York-based photographer Robert Barbera for posting photos he took of her in July 2018 on the social media platform without permission. "Without permission or authorization from Plaintiff, Defendant volitionally selected, copied, stored and displayed each of Plaintiff's copyright protected Photographs," reads the complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court in California. According to Billboard, Barbera claims that the pop star financially benefitted from sharing his copyrighted photos and harmed the "potential market" for them.
