B.B. King’s Estate Sued by Photographer Over Multiple Album Covers

b.b. king

*A New York photographer is suing B.B. King’s estate and Universal Music Group for copyright infringement, saying his pictures of the singer have been used on King’s albums for more than 40 years without his permission.

In the suit filed Thursday in New York federal court, Glen Craig says his photos of King have been used on albums without his permission since 1971. He cites more than 40 examples of what he says is unauthorized use of his photography of King, including several photos published with albums over the past year.

Craig is asking for damages and a jury trial.

King died last year at 89.
