Photographer sues pornographer

Lara Jade Coton the British Flickr photographer who had her self portrait used by a pornographic film-maker has hired US lawyers to sue him reports TampaBay.Com.

Richard A. Harrison, a lawyer with Allen Dell P.A. of Tampa, filed the lawsuit in Tampa’s U.S. District Court, accusing Bob Burge, president of Nevada-based TVX Films, of a list of legal violations including copyright infringement, civil conspiracy, misappropriation of her image, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

As previously reported by EPUK Coton says she was 14 when the picture was taken and wants the court to impound all copies of the movie and other materials bearing her image.
