Photographer Sues Apple For Stealing Her Eye

Photographer Sues Apple For Stealing Her Eye

When you’re advertising something called a “retina display,” what better to use than a picture of an eye? You better make sure you’re using the right picture though; a photographer is suing Apple for stealing her’s.

The eye in question, featured above, was captured by Swiss photographer Sabine Liewald, and while she gave Apple permission to use the high-resolution image, she says it was only for testing some layouts. When the image showed up in Apple marketing material, and at an Apple keynote, she was a bit miffed.

She’s suing as a result, but not just for damages regarding copyright infringement; she’s also going for a piece of Apple’s profits. It’s that second bit that might be a little contentious. Either way, it looks like this is the second time Apple has ripped off something Swiss, thought this may have just been oversight. Whether the infringement was intentional or not, one thing is for sure: it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye
