Minnesota real estate mogul Kris Lindahl has filed a breach of contract and copyright infringement lawsuit against a Canadian realtor whom Lindahl believes has stolen his intellectual property.
The lawsuit accuses Golfi Realty, led by Ontario-based agent Rob Golfi, of copying Lindahl’s “arms outreached” pose in numerous marketing mediums, including on social media, billboards and bus advertisements. The lawsuit says the most egregious copyright infringement stems from Lindahl’s 2019 election campaign spoof.
Lindahl’s video included American flags in the background amid a cable news broadcast setting. Lindahl approaches the podium, makes his speech and ends with his arms outreached pose.
