Bruno Mars engaged in a little jailhouse rock when he slapped a pic of himself as a pint-sized Elvis Presley impersonator all over his social media ... at least according to the photog who just sued Bruno.
Catherine McGann says she snapped the 1989 shot of Bruno -- when he would've been just 3 or 4 years old, but was already famously performing the King's hits. McGann says she owns the copyright on the shot ... so, she was shocked to see it pop up all over Bruno's social media.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says he posted it back in June on his IG, FB and Twitter pages ... for a "Way Back Wednesday" that blew up. McGann says it garnered more than 1.2 million likes on Instagram alone. In other words ... 24k magic!
Now, it doesn't take a suspicious mind to figure out the alleged problem here -- McGann says Bruno never got permission to use her copyrighted work. She's suing Bruno and his record label, Warner Music, for damages and all profits they earned from her photo.
Thank you very much.

Legally she's right, but what a dumb person she is!
You honestly wanna sue a world famous celeb for sharing a pic you took of them on social media? What "profit" exactly does she think he made from that? If she was smart she would have made a friendly comment, elegantly mentioning the fact that she took the pic, and voíla: Free advertisement for her as a photographer, seen and shared by millions of fans. But she rather wants to be known as a petty, money-hungry person. Stupid.

The only thing which comes close to the level of pettiness is your unnecessary comment.

Ironically, your comment says a lot more about your personality than that of "the person in my profile picture".

In fairness, if the photographer owns the copyright, then he has dramatically reduced the commercial value of her intellectual property. I don’t agree with her actions, but she literally has nothing to lose from it.

You write as if this is the only asset she has - she's a professional photographer, surely she hasn't been living from the licenses of this one single picture for the last 28 years. She's getting publicity now, which I guess is somewhat beneficial, but as a wrote above I think she could've garnered positive publicity, if she had handled the issue differently.

This is why I could not be famous, because I would have Mob connections, and she would be next!

Why do you even use ukmix? Do you actually contribute anything except for being a troll?

This is sad though, why are some people so money hungry?
