Actress Rebel Wilson has been hit with a federal lawsuit accusing her of copyright infringement.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Xposure Photo Agency is suing Rebel over several photos they claim she posted on Instagram.
The agency says they own the copyright to a series of photos showing Rebel while filming the movie “The Hustle” with Anne Hathaway. The photos were taken during an outdoor scene. She was seen holding prop money on-set next to Anne and high-fiving her costar in another.
Xposure says they sold the photos to Daily Mail who published them in April 2018. The agency says Rebel ripped off the photos and posted them on her Instagram account. The lawsuit points out Rebel has “has a large number of Instagram followers—over 6.7 million— and her Instagram feed is open and viewable to the public.”
