Photographer’s take not getting paid for their work very seriously, and are protected by copyright law. Thus, Armen Djerrahian is suing Rick Ross because a number of pics he snapped of the Miami rapper and his Maybach Music Group collective have been used without his permission.
Armen Djerrahian claims in a new lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — he shot photos of Ross for a magazine layout — including the iconic photo of Ross pointing a finger to his head like it’s a gun– but claims Ross ripped off the image and is now using it illegally.
Djerrahian claims he also shot a bunch of rappers from Ross’ Maybach Music group — including Meek Mill, Gunplay and Omarion — and now those pictures are popping up everywhere.
Djerrahian says his images are being used on posters, ads, internet banners, mixtape and cd covers, websites and all over social media … even though he never gave anyone permission.
The Bawse’s lawyers have been earning their checks lately. Rozay is suing LMFAO for jacking his “Hustlin'” hit for “Party Rock Anthem.”
