The Come Up: LeBron James Posted A Picture Of Himself Dunking & Now He’s Being Sued For $150,000

31AA5EAF-3E01-4D66-8F93-A651EEC1FB28James posting these photos of him from games is nothing new, as he uploads action snapshots very frequently during the NBA season. Some photographers will use their photos being used by the superstar to their advantage, but Mitchell instead decided to file a lawsuit against James, claiming that LeBron infringed on his copyright by posting the image. It is worth nothing that the Laker didn’t credit the photographer when he posted the image, which could have made a difference in the long run.

Now, Mitchell and his attorneys are arguing that James being the subject of the photo doesn’t give him permission to publish it on his social media pages. As the owner, Mitchell claims this violated the multiple copyrights he has on the image, since no contractual agreement was created between himself, LeBron James, and/or the Los Angeles Lakers. Because of this, Mitchell is seeking damages that “would reflect profits, income, receipts and other benefits derived by James and his co-defendants or, in the alternative, damages of up to $150,000 per infringement.”
