A business in Atlanta is in hot water with a couple of big-name celebrities who, for some reason or another, didn't like the fact that the company was using their images in advertising materials. What's interesting is that the company is a relatively large business that should have known better than to use George Clooney's and Julia Roberts' images without their permission.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, George Clooney and Julia Roberts are suing an Atlanta based business, Digital Projection Inc. of Kennesaw, for unauthorized use of their images in advertisements and promotions. Earlier this year, a similar lawsuit was filed in Canada by Roberts and Clooney against a company called Beyond Audio Inc.
Their lawsuit against Digital Projection Inc. was filed in a Atlanta federal court. Julia Roberts (who is suing under her married name Julia Moder) and George Clooney are seeking monetary damages. They also want a court order blocking the company from using their images in promotions and advertisements that they did not authorize.
