50 Cent Sued By The Photographer Through Instagram Shots
G-Unit's also named in the lawsuit.
A photographer is suing 50 cent for the alleged theft of photos and posting them on Instagram.
Christopher Pasatieri the lawsuit alleges that their photos were used by 50 to promote the TELEVISION program of Feeding and products such as SMS Audio. He says that the 50 did so without obtaining your permission, and that every message received more than 42,000 likes.
Pasatieri did not specify when the photos were taken, but an example obtained by TMZ seems to be a month of June 2014 show with G-Unit (who is also named in the lawsuit) in the Citi Field stadium Queens, New York. Check it out below.
TMZ Use professionally-shot photos on Instagram without authorization is a common place. Many artists have begun to credit photographers in the captions of Instagram posts, perhaps as a way to avoid and fight off lawsuits like the one that has been filed against the 50.
