Can Katherine Heigl Win Lawsuit Over Unauthorized Tweet Of Her Face ...
Forbes
It seems about as absurd as suing a photographer for selling pictures of the Chrysler Building in New York. Oh wait, that's happened.

After reading the article, Heigl does have a good case. Recently Obama had the same thing happen where an athlete took a picture of the two of them with his Samsung phone and later used it against Obama without is knowledge as an advertisement for Samsung. This is the same situation. Heigl could win this lawsuit because she didn't authorize the picture for advertising purposes. However, I'm not sure the case is worth 6 million, but I do think that she has a chance in winning the case.

I would say that Katherine has a good case on her hands. Not absurd at all. The photographer should have requested consent before the selling of the pictures.

Unfortunately, although she may feel she did nothing wrong, we must be very aware of how are actions can offend others and their cultures. What may be alright in the UK and America may not be acceptable other places. It is our job as tourist to be aware if this when traveling to other countries.
