Miley Cyrus sued by paparazzo after posting a photo of herself online

According to court documents obtained by Billboard, paparazzo Robert Barbera has filed a lawsuit against the 29-year-old singer for posting a picture he took of her without permission or attribution. Cyrus posted a photo on social media of herself waving to onlookers while exiting a building, allegedly taken by Barbera in 2020. It did not credit the photographer in its caption, and the pop star reportedly did not ask Barbera for the right to use it. Music Times reports that copyright law attributes a photo’s copyright to the person who took the photo.
