Based on a report from BBC News, a paparazzi photographer filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Dua Lipa. She is being sued for more than $150,000 (Php 7.5 million) by a photo agency after allegedly uploading a paparazzi photo of herself on Instagram in February 2019.

In the now-deleted post, the “Don’t Start Now” singer was seen standing in line, holding her passport and airline ticket, and wore an oversized hat. It came with a caption, “I’ll be living under big fluffy hats until further notice.”  She posted the photo on her IG four days after it was taken.

According to the report, the company that owns the copyright to the image, Integral Images is now accusing her of “knowingly” sharing it “without permission or authorization.”

Copyright law means the subject of the image has nothing to do with the ownership of the copyright in the photograph. The photo agency alleges that she has made money from the photo due to the fact that her IG account is “monetized.”
