Hello!, People and Getty Images, the photo agency which sold the picture's rights, will seek damages from sites that illegally reproduced the image of Shiloh Nouvel.
The illegally reproduced image of baby Shiloh Nouvel has drawn such publications, as Hello! People and Getty Images mad that they are threatened legal action against several Websites that posted its leaked cover shot of the happy family, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their first child ever.
"We were very shocked and horrified to see that this embargo has been breached," Juliet Herd, Hello!'s feature editor, told Reuters. "Hello! is taking legal action around the world to stop Internet sites and everyone else who may seek to publish. We are sending out 'Cease and Desist' letters to each of these sites."
This of course has become an unfortunate thing for the U.S. magazine which reportedly has spent $4.1 million to get the precious picture after an all-night bidding war over the weekend.
