Khloe K Slapped With $200K Lawsuit For Posting Pic Of Herself To Insta

Ahh the world of copyright infringement. So odd and nonsensical.

The latest news from the insane web of horror that is Hollywod copyright battles is a particularly fun one: Khloe Kardashian has been slapped with a $200K lawsuit for posting a photo of herself on Instagram that she didn’t take. 
Xposure Photos UK claims that Khloe copied a photo that the paparazzi firm took of her and her sister dining out in Miami without their permission – and edited out (read: cropped) the copyright info at the bottom of the photo.
In court documents obtained by People magazine, Xposure claims that by posting the photo to Instagram, Khloe deprived them of business in selling the photo to magazines.
Kardashian uses her Instagram feed for the purposes of promotion — specifically, to promote her own business interests, products, and ventures; to promote and sell the products and services of others … Kardashian’s Instagram post made the photograph immediately available to her nearly 67 million followers and others, consumers of entertainment news — and especially news and images of Kardashian herself, as evidenced by their status as followers of Kardashian — who would otherwise be interested in viewing licensed versions of the photograph in the magazines and newspapers that are plaintiff’s customers.

One day I hope to be famous enough that posting photos of myself to my own Instagram results in $200K lawsuits rather than criminal nudity charges, like they currently do.
