A photographer, Anthony Ayiomamitis has filed a lawsuit in the Texas Western District Court against Sinclair Television Group for copyright infringement.
The plaintiff alleges that Sinclair Television reproduced and publicly displayed a copyrighted photograph of a lunar apogee and perigee without a license or permission.
The plaintiff reportedly said that Ayiomamitis owns the lunar apogee and perigee photograph which has been copyrighted in the United State.
The plaintiff reportedly said that Sinclair Television published an article on its website on April 6, titled “Pink Supermoon: When to see the biggest and brightest moon of 2020” which features the plaintiff’s photograph as one of the photographs in the article.
The plaintiff reportedly said that Sinclair Television infringement is willful and intentional and had caused lots of damages and loss of profits.
The plaintiff seeks judgment in his favor, an award for pre-judgment interest, an award for damages, an award for costs and fees, and other relief as determined by the Court.
The case is ongoing.
