Hilary Swank Files Lawsuit Over Unauthorized Usage of Her Photo in Ads


Hilary Swank


The complaint the 'New Year's Eve' actress submitted to a Los Angeles court on May 10 reveals that she is suing a company called Robert's Home Audio and Video and its proprietor.

Hilary Swank is taking a home-audio company to court over unauthorized photos. The leading lady of "Million Dollar Baby" has, on May 10, filed a lawsuit against Robert's Home Audio and Video and its proprietor Randall Cordero and Cordero Studios, claiming that they were using her name and image in their ads without her permission.

Part of the complaint submitted in Los Angeles Superior Court read, "Defendants did not ask for or receive Ms. Swank's permission to use her photograph, identity or persona in the advertisements or otherwise to associate with Defendants' companies or to market Defendants' commercial products or services." It, however, didn't offer details on how the images were used.

The two-time Oscar winner is suing for misappropriation of right of publicity/privacy and negligence, and is seeking unspecified damages.

Swank isn't the only Hollywood star to have taken legal action against companies that are using his/her images without permission. Back on April 27, George Clooney and Julia Roberts sued two audio-visual companies for misappropriation of right of publicity/right of privacy, misappropriation of common law right of publicity/right of privacy, trademark infringement and negligence.
