Singer Baek Ji Young and actress Nam Kyu Ri
sued a plastic surgery clinic for uploading their photos without permission -- and won! It was said that while the employees at the clinic were doing “blog marketing,” they used the photos of Baek Ji Young and Nam Kyu Ri to promote their business. The judge said “even though blog posting refers to simply publicly expressing one’s opinion on television shows, those posters attached ads for the clinic as a tool for marketing.” The judge ruled that the clinic infringed the “right of publicity” of Baek Ji Young and Nam Kyu Ri. The clinic now has to pay Baek Ji Young and Nam Kyu Ri about $5000 each.
