A British paparazzi agency filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against L.A. socialite Khloe Kardashian for posting her own photo on Instagram.com.

The agency, Xposure Photos Ltd., filed the lawsuit against Kardashian for posting an image one of their photographers snapped of her.

The photographer captured images of Kardshian and one of her sisters heading to Kimodo restaurant in Miami in September. The images were “exclusive” because no other photographer took the same photos. Exclusive images are worth a lot more than photos taken on red carpets by multiple photogs.

Xposure Photos is seeking $150,000 — the revenue they claim was lost when Kardashian made the exclusive “photograph immediately available to her nearly 67 million followers” on Instagram.com.

In response to the lawsuit, Kardashian refused to allow paparazzi to take photos of her arriving at a Calabasas, CA. studio today. But that will only hurt her in the long run — unless she plans on hiring her own paparazzi to supply photos to her friends at TMZ.

Photo agencies such as Xposure and Splash News are hiring attorneys to crack down on social media users who upload exclusive photographs that normally sell for $500 or more to magazines and newspapers.

    I just hate this coven of witches. They ruin every man that comes near them. Scott, Kanyette, Tyga, Rob, Lamar and now they’ve officially disowned she-man Brucette. They waited to crucify Brucette until the public no longer cared about his vehicular murdering flat azz.

    How do you copyright/trademark an image of someone that they didn’t authorize you to take? I don’t even like the kardashians but this is proposterous.

  • Thismessismessy

    Rumor down in the trump post is there is very few black people left on this site. Raise your hand if you got melanin? Say something real extra black so of course folks can TELL if you are black or not. I guess.

  • MissHarlem

    LMAO on occasion ?

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Because I’ve heard when people are outside in public as a photographer with a permit you can snap photos of anyone or anything. It’s called public domain or something like that.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    If the photographer didn’t first post the photos she’s not permitted without permission. I just had wedding photos done two weeks ago and when our photographer sent us the 6 sample photos we were not allowed to post them on our social media. We had to wait til he posted them on his photography business site and tag us. The rules are weird with photos especially professional, but there are rules.

    I’m so sick of these build a body women. This family is so media obsessed. Alerting the paparazzi, planting & leaking stories to maintain the illusion that they are relevant. I don’t think the public is interested in them they work hard at making their lives relevant. It is impossible to ignore them. I always wondered how they would react to a media freeze out. They would probably go into a deep depression.

    Every time I go to service my car the guy comes back with a piece of paper claiming this & that needs work etc..I knew something was up so I asked for the old part that he claimed needed to be repaired along with the box etc of the new item. I knew this dealer was up to no good. My dad told me I was paying too much for servicing. He said call around to other dealers and I was shocked the price difference. Sorry for my rant!

    Morning. Ain’t nuthin like a church scandal right before church. Potter’s House Preacher Resigns After Alleged Affair With Married Goddaughter
    ________________________________________________________
    A new scandal has rocked the church world this week and its one closely connected to Bishop T.D. Jakes. A married Denver pastor has resigned after allegations that he was cheating with his godchild – his married godchild. Chris Hill, a Jakes protegé who is pastor of The Potters House Church Of Denver, left his post earlier this month.
    Further, after several weeks of ministry, counseling and contemplation, Pastor Chris and his wife Joy Hill will be seeking a formal separation,” the church noted in a since removed statement on Facebook last Thursday.The resignation comes just two weeks after Jake’s ministry confirmed with The Christian Post that Hill had been nixed from the International Pastors & Leadership Conference set for April 27-29 at Jakes’ The Potter’s House of Dallas in Texas.

    Several weeks ago, Joy Hill, Chris Hill’s wife of more than 20 years, alleged in a mass text message to church members that she was able to verify that her husband carried on an affair with their young goddaughter, Shirnae McFarlane, who got married to Arthur McFarlane III on September 26, 2014.

    “FYI Pastor called the police on me tonight because I yelled at him asking him to leave the house tonight and he wouldn’t. I was upset because he won’t stop having an affair with Shirnae, and I can’t live like this anymore. They’ve been having an affair for SEVERAL months, and he finally admitted it yesterday (after I hired a private investigator to have them followed over the past 6 weeks),” Joy Hill reportedly said in the text message first cited by the Obnoxious Television blog,
    which broke the news about the late Bishop Eddie Long’s cancer last September. Shirnae McFarlane’s alleged cuckolded husband, Arthur McFarlane III, has since updated his relationship status on Facebook to “Separated” while his wife’s status remains “Married.”

    So out of proportion ,big ole fake butt and toothpick legs.

    Scandalous!! ?

    Does she realize how horrible she looks from the back. I think if Khloe remained natural and stayed humble in the end she would have been considered the prettiest out of the sisters.

    ????????

  • KHJ2016

    How did she obtain these exclusive photos that she was able to post online before the photographer had a chance to sell them?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A celebrity with middle fingas up? Those photos would sell even more.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you read the post? She was sued for copyright infringement. Wait until they start suing all social media users for posting exclusive celebrity pics.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you read the post? She was sued for copyright infringement. They are going after social media users now that most bloggers have quit blogging because of lawsuits.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She posted an exclusive photo that a photographer took of her.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This post is a heads up to let you social media users know they are coming for you if you post celebrity photos on Instagram. They are starting with Khloe because she’s rich. But soon they will sue everybody because there is too much money to be made. Remember when the RIAA went after people for downloading MP3s? The same is about to happen to users who post celebrity photos on Instagram.

    I understood it, in the legal sense, but it’s still a picture of her. But I guess if you don’t give credit then you set yourself up. That’s crazy. I’ve always noticed you give credit to the photogs when you post their work.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The copyright laws are being abused by photographers who claim they lost $150,000 in revenue, which is BS. Most of the pictures you see on my blog cost $8 or $10 each.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I don’t think you understand what’s about to happen to your favorite Instagram blogs. Shaderoom, Baller Alert, etc., are all about to be sued for posting celebrity pictures. They’re making an example out of Khloe.

  • kande minter

    Lol whatever

  • Tea??

    But this is ? ????

  • Yup, I said it

    I’m with you on that. People can post congrats on CiCi’s fan page all day long if they please. The only pregnancy I wanted to hear about was Janet Jackson’s because a 50 yr old giving birth is certainly newsworthy.

    What about Ja Rule & his shenanigans in the Bahamas?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Not my fav couple but congrats. I never was a Ciara fan

    After reading your first two sentences, i said that sounds like some Mr. Obnoxious church mess lol.

    My mom went to a church earlier today and said, “pastor so-n-so know they can preach. I just hate he got that problem.” He was my favorite preacher too back in the day maybe because he does some of the best hooping and gets the church going. Well, his old rusty behind had an outside baby by a member & of course he’s still pastoring and wife still by his side.

Yet, these no talent cu* buckets are? You consistently shove posts about these plastic whor%#$ down our throat even though we have said we’ve had enough of them. TMZ is clearly not their only friend. #kettlepotblack Wow, been coming to this site since the beginning and have often supported your not so popular views but today will be my last time logging on.

    I see you Sandra. LOL

    This chick is slick with a smile and some. Come on now she’s buddies with the Kardashian – Jenner mattresses klan. All these fans that won’t buy 2 copies of everything she releases and share are funny.

  • B.Loveitt

    Just like they’re cleaning YouTube up too! A lot will be removed but if any of them think they have a hustle for YouTube this will be the time to get to it, so you can get all that sponsorship money. They will be looking for new channels to advertise on. IJS

  • Lisa jones

    That looks disgusting!! Glad this trend is over!!

  • BlueHousen

    I don’t get it. It’s your own image. How about her suing for posting her image. It should be a ‘push.’ Who owns the image, her or the photog. Anyway, can’t you work around it by posting and giving credit the photographer.

  • speakinmymind

    But that’s not T.D. Jakes himself. That’s the pastor at a BRANCH of The Potter’s House. Bishop Jakes ain’t responsible for that man’s shenanigans.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yes. Thats some of the dirt they don’t want coming out that all those chicks are major pill poppers besides being hookers all over the world.

  • JENNYJONES1

    DID YOU READ THE POST B/C THESE ARE 2 TOTALLY DIFFERENT SITUATION. YOU HIRED A PHOTOGRAPHER WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT SANDRA’S POST SAYS. THIS GUY SNAPPED PICS OF KHLOE & HER SISTER GOING INTO A RESTAURANT WHICH IS WHY I ASKED HOW’D KHLOE GET IT. MAYBE THE POST ISN’T CLEAR ENOUGH B/C DID HE SEND IT TO HER OR DID HE UPLOAD IT ONTO HIS SITE AND SHE COPIED & PASTED IT TO HER SITE? EITHER WAY I THINK THIS LAWSUIT GOES NO WHERE B/C SITES TAKE PICS FROM CELEBS SOCIAL MEDIA ALLLL THE TIME SO WHAT’S GOOD FOR THEM IS GOOD FOR THE CELEBS………JENNY JONES!!!

    Question: How did she get a copy of the “exclusive” photo to upload it if Paps took it?! Case closed… lol

  • therealkym

    Those are weak black men who need the YES SIR type women, the desperate women who do whatever they say just so they can hang around them. These women are envious of us (black women) and want to be black so bad that they get butt implants, lip injections, boobs, etc. Since black is in, these type of black men finally feel important and valued when they meet these women, LOL…so they cling to whoever gives them the feeling of being superior. However, the real BROTHAs don’t need a woman to validate who they are. They have high self esteem and they honor and appreciate the pure essence of a black woman!

  • ShWa
