Photographer Files Own Lawsuit, Alleges $3.6 Mil in Damages

An Idaho photographer has sued the social media site Buzzfeed for $3.6 million. The lawsuit says the site is liable for damages, not just for publishing the photographer’s photo of a female soccer player heading a ball back in 2010 but for every one of the dozens of sites that ran the photo.
