Lara Dutta sues magazine

Mumbai (PTI): Former Miss Universe and actor Lara Dutta has filed a suit in Bombay High Court against a magazine for allegedly using her photographs for the promotion of a forthcoming modelling contest.

Dutta claimed that the lifestyle and fashion magazine, Gladrags, was using her pictures without permission thereby violating copyright laws.

Gladrags contended that it had purchased Dutta’s photographs from a photographer who claimed he had the licence to use the photographs in any manner.

Janak Dwarkadas, counsel for the magazine, said Gladrags used the photographs only after the photographer gave in writing that the pictures could be used for publication.

The photographer has not been made a party to the suit, Dwarkadas added. “It is also learnt that there is some agreement between Dutta and the photographer. The said agreement was also not produced before the court,” he said.

Justice D.G. Karnik on Friday adjourned the matter for hearing on Tuesday and directed the magazine not to use the pictures till then.
