Jennifer Lawrence’s Fight to Get Nude Pics Removed Hits Legal Snag
Jennifer Lawrence has launched a legal assault to get her nude pics removed from various Web sites on the Internet, but one site is having none of that because she might not actually own the copyrights to the photos.
Sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ … Lawrence’s attorney fired off a letter to a porn website demanding it take down the nude photos of J-Law because she owns the copyright on the pics. We’re told the website isn’t buying that argument though.
The site’s stance is … since some of the pics are NOT selfies, the person who actually took those photos would most likely hold the copyright. In its response to Lawrence’s attorney … we’re told the site is demanding proof of Jennifer’s copyright, or the name of the person who snapped the shots.
You might recall a similar case of copyright law came into play back at the Oscars last year when Ellen Degeneres “took” the most famous selfie in the world, only as it turned out Bradley Cooper actually owns the photo because he was the one who actually took the picture (Jennifer Lawrence was in THAT photo as well).
Just one more twist in the sure to be long drawn out legal battle over The Fappening.
