Gwyneth Paltrow’s company has been hit with a federal lawsuit over a post on Goop.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the actress’ company Goop Inc. is being sued by a photographer named Larry Singer.
Singer accuses Goop of ripping off his work and posting it on their website. The suit states, “This action arises out of Defendant’s unauthorized reproduction and public display of a copyrighted photograph of the Bonnet House, owned and registered by Singer, a professional photographer.”
The photographer owns the copyright to a photo of the Bonnet House. Goop allegedly used his work without permission or paying him a dime.
“Goop did not license the Photograph from Plaintiff for its Website, nor did Goop have Plaintiff’s permission or consent to publish the Photograph on its Website.”
Singer is suing Paltrow’s company seeking $150,000 per infringement, along with all profits Goop made from his work.
