Miley Cyrus is getting sued for posting a photo of herself on Instagram

Miley Cyrus is being sued for posting a picture, of herself, on Instagram.

The ‘Midnight Sky’ singer shared a snap of herself, waving at fans, wearing Louis Vuitton jeans – pretty chill, right?

So, why is Cyrus being sued for a seemingly tame picture? Well, photographer Robert Barbera is alleging it wasn’t hers to share.

 

The now infamous photo, taken back in 2020, has become the subject of a lawsuit filed by Barbera on Friday, 9 September.

In the suit, Barbera alleged: “The photograph was copied, stored and displayed without license or permission, thereby infringing on plaintiff’s copyrights.”

“The infringement includes a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) for a fixed tangible medium of expression that was sufficiently permanent or stable to permit it to be communicated for a period of more than a transitory duration and therefore constitutes a specific infringement,” the photographer goes on to say in documents obtained by Law360.

This isn’t the first case of its kind, as Barbera has sued other singers before, such as Dua Lipa.
