Dua Lipa Faces a Copyright Lawsuit Over Instagram Photos

Technology has made sharing as convenient as pressing a button—and with that, it’s easier than ever to spread images across the internet. Platforms are rife with reposts and screenshots, with attribution oftentimes questionable or completely nonexistent. While it may seem harmless, the consequences can be very real. The latest example? British singer and songwriter Dua Lipa is being sued (for the second time in a year, no less) for copyright infringement over photographs posted to her Instagram account, which have since been removed. 

The suit was filed by New York-based photographer Robert Barbera in a U.S. District Court in California over photographs he took in 2018, which were posted to Lipa’s account in 2019 and shared with her millions of followers. (Her current follower count is 84.4 million.)
