B.B. King Photographer Sues Estate

B.B. King

(Radio.com) Photographer Glen Craig has filed suit against B.B. King's estate and Universal Music Group, alleging that King's albums have featured his photography without his permission for more than four decades.

The lawsuit was filed in New York federal court and includes more than 40 examples of work Craig says has been used without proper authorization. Documents allege that the pattern of copyright infringement began in 1971.

King died in 2015 at the age of 89, and his estate has posthumously released recordings. Craig alleges that some of his estate's most recent releases contain his photography. Read more here.
