Internet Giant Google threatened with $100 million Lawsuit for celeb nude photos



A Los Angeles lawyer by the name Marty Singer represents over a dozen female celebrities is threatening to sue Google for $ 100 million USD over the series of the nude photo leaks from the iCloud weeks ago.




The law firm Lavely & Singer, in a letter accused the internet giant “accommodating, facilitating and perpetuating” the wide distribution of the nude photos, after it failed to remove the photos from the search result.”Google has turned a blind eye while this site repeatedly victimize and exploit these women,” said the statement from the letter.
This legal threat to Google is the result of a widespread leak of the intimate photos of the celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The law firm did not name the clients who were involved in this lawsuit, but they alleged that many of the leaked photos were still to be found in the Google’s search results. This comes four weeks after the law firm had legally asked Google to remove the links, which they have not done yet.
"Google knows the images are hacked stolen property, private and confidential photos and videos unlawfully obtained and posted by pervert predators who are violating the victims' privacy rights ... Yet Google has taken little or no action to stop these outrageous violations," Singer says
 
He accuses the company of recklessly allowing the intolerable violations to continue on and in the conscious regards of his clients rights.”Because the victims are celebrities with valuable publicity rights, you do nothing -- nothing but collect millions of dollars in advertising revenue from your co-conspirator advertising partners as you seek to capitalize on this scandal rather than quash it,” said Singer.

Google from its own part is disputing the accusations.


A spokes person representing the search engine told” We've removed tens of thousands of pictures -- within hours of the requests being made -- and we have closed hundreds of accounts. The Internet is used for many good things. Stealing people's private photos is not one of them."
