Los Angeles: Actress Hilary Swank is taking a home-audio company to court over unauthorized photos.

The 37-year-old Million Dollar Baby has filed a lawsuit against Robert’s Home Audio and Video and its proprietor Randall Cordero and Cordero Studios, claiming that they were using her name and image in their ads without her permission, reported Aceshowbiz.

Part of the complaint submitted in Los Angeles Superior Court read, “Defendants did not ask for or receive Ms Swank’s permission to use her photograph, identity or persona in the advertisements or otherwise to associate with Defendants’ companies or to market Defendants’ commercial products or services.”

The two-time Oscar winner is suing for misappropriation of right of publicity/privacy and negligence, and is seeking unspecified damages. Swank isn’t the only Hollywood star to have taken legal action against companies that are using his/her images without permission.

George Clooney and Julia Roberts sued two audio-visual companies for misappropriation of right of publicity, right of privacy, trademark infringement and negligence. (PTI)
