Interiors Photographer Andy Frame Sues Several Websites Over Misuse Of Olivia Newton John’s Property Photos
November 17th, 2013
An recent article in the South Florida Business Journal reports that Palm Beach County Photographer Andy Frame sued several websites to defend his copyrights on photos of Olivia Newton John’s home in Jupiter, Florida. The article says:
Frame and his attorney Joel Rothman said all the parties except GossipExtra had settled confidentially. According to the court docket, Daily Mail and Warner Bros. Advanced Digital were terminated as defendants on Aug. 30, while Zillow was terminated as a defendant on Sept. 17. The case was also reopened against remaining defendants on Sept. 17.
“Licensing photographs is how I make my living. I do exclusively interior architecture,” Frame said. “It aggravates me because a lot of them know better. Of course there are amateur photographers who don’t care and will give away their material, but that infringes on the ability of others to make a living.”
We’ve covered Andy’s work before.
