Urban Outfitters & Macy's Sued By Photographer For Using Images Of Tupac Without Prior Permission

It’s not just Kendall and Kylie Jenner in trouble for using images of rappers on t-shirts without permission, photographer Chi Modu is suing Macy’s and Urban Outfitters for the same reason.
Read excerpts below via TMZ:

Chi Modu, known for his portraits of hip-hop artists, claims a merchandising company used his Pac pics without permission to produce a bunch of apparel. According to the docs … the company then sold the shirts to Urban Outfitters and Macy’s, which sold them to the public … also allegedly without Modu’s consent.
Modu admits he had an agreement with the merchandising company to use his Tupac photos at one time, but it expired in July 2016 … and he says the dirty business came afterward.
The photog wants all the stores’ profits from the shirts, along with damages.
We reached out to Urban and Macy’s … no word back so far.
We imagine these corporations try and use the ‘transformative use’ defense — but Chi may have a case anyway.
