Lickerish Ltd. v. Auction Holdings, Inc. (D. Mass. 21-cv-10113).

London-based photographic syndication company Lickerish accuses Auction Holdings of infringing the copyright in a photograph of Laura Vandervoort by Dimitry Loiseau, a photographer represented by Lickerish. The complaint asserts that Auction Holdings used the photograph on its http://www.auctionzip.com website. The site seems to be an on-line collection of actions taking place across the country, with some ability to place bids on-line, that included the a signed copy of the Vandervoort photograph. Of note, the complaint does not allege that the actual photograph being auctioned was unlicensed, only that the images (copies of the photograph) used to advertise the auction were violations of the copyright. The case is before Judge O’Toole.
