Two of Australia's biggest stars are facing copyright lawsuits for sharing paparazzi pictures on their Instagram.
Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth are being sued for sharing pictures of themselves on their respective Instagram accounts. As reported by E!News, 29-year-old Hemsworth is being sued for sharing paparazzi pictures of himself filming his Netflix movie 'Isn't It Romantic' in June. The lawsuit could mean that Hemsworth may have to pay up to $150,000 per infringement.
The document also states, "Hemsworth or someone acting on his behalf again posted the Photograph to Hemsworth's Instagram Story twice on June 20, 2019. That same day, there was a swipe-up feature on his Instagram story to encourage people to vote for the movie 'Isn't It Romantic' for the Teen Choice Movie Awards."
On the other hand, Wilson is in trouble for sharing some pictures of herself filming her comedy film 'The Hustle' with Anne Hathaway. According to The Blast, the Xposure Photo Agency is suing Wilson for sharing the photos on her Instagram handle at $150,000 per infringement.
The lawsuit points out that Wilson has "a large number of Instagram followers — over 6.7 million — and her Instagram feed is open and viewable to the public". Wilson is currently promoting her role in the musical 'Cats', which is based on the stage musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Hemsworth was recently seen in the film 'Killerman' which secured an 18% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, Hemsworth is hoping for a comeback next year in an action series alongside Christoph Waltz. The series is currently untitled and will be aired on the new streaming service, Quibi.
As reported by Variety, the show has been centered around Hemsworth's character who "desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life, accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he soon discovers that he's not the hunter, but the prey".
