Miller, who is the copyright holder of two photos depicting Tupac Shakur, has worked with some of the most iconic 90’s supermodels, photographed hundreds of major-label album covers from all genres of music from Tupac, Nick Cave to Herb Albert.
According to his complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on Friday An association with the Jenners – “internet and reality television personalities who are known for their ostentations displays of wealth on social media” – and specifically Kendall, is “particularly problematic [for Miller] given that she was complicit in not one but two of the worst public relations disasters in recent memory,” Miller further claims that “at no time [did he seek] to associate his work with Kendall or Kylie or any of their companies.” Shortly after their release, the families (and in the case of The Doors, the manager) of those featured on the tees, as well as their millions of fans, began speaking out against the tees, describing the stunt to be “exploitative” and “disgusting.” Miller is seeking statutory damages in an amount up to $150,000 per copyrighted image, and alleges that he “is entitled to disgorgement of Defendants’ profits directly and indirectly attributable to Defendants’ infringement of his rights in the Photographs, in an amount to be established at trial. “
