Friday Factoid: Heigl and Duane Reade Settle Lawsuit Regarding Use of Photo

Actress Katherine Heigl recently settled a lawsuit she filed against retailer Duane Reade Inc. regarding the company’s post on both Twitter and Facebook, of a picture taken of her without her knowledge or approval. According to the lawsuit, Heigl was photographed without her consent in March near a Duane Reade store. Duane Reade then posted the photo on its Twitter and Facebook accounts with captions that advertised the store and created and implied endorsement of Duane Reade by Heigl.  Source: Jon Wachs websiteIf you have any questions regarding the content of this communication, please contact Jonathan R.
