Owner of Tarantino Photo Sues Gossip Magazine

The lawyer of Inga Birna Dungal has sent publishing company Birtingur a claim for compensation because of a photo of US director Quentin Tarantino kissing a woman in a Reykjavík nightclub published in gossip magazine Séd og heyrt which Dungal took.

The woman in question was Dungal’s friend and Dungal claims the magazine stole the photo from her website. “This is clearly a violation of copyright,” her lawyer Vilhjálmur H. Vilhjálmsson told Fréttabladid.

Dungal is demanding ISK 1 million (USD 15,100, EUR 9,900) in compensation.

“This is just nonsense,” said Eiríkur Jónsson, editor of Séd og heyrt. “We have the entire process of communication with those ladies, those queens of the nightlife, on email which proves that [publishing the photo] was with their consent.”
