Bieber is known for his activeness on social media and constantly updates fans with pictures. Earlier on March 13, Justin took to his social media to share a picture of him with a friend. Now, an international photographer Robert Barbara has taken legal action against Justin Bieber for copyright infringement of the picture he shared on his social media.

Justin Bieber has gotten into a copyright violation case for a picture he posted on Instagram with friend Rich Wilkerson and himself on March 13.  International photographer Robert Barbera has filed litigation against Justin Bieber over copyright violation for a picture the singer shared on his Instagram. According to a report in E!News, the photographer said that the action was taken when Justin used a copyrighted picture, owned and registered under the name of Robert Barbera. While Barbera is and has always been the rightful and sole owner of the picture, the documents also stated the same. While Bieber did an unauthorized copy of the picture and displayed it public, the singer shared the picture captioning it, “Me and my guy.” (Also Read: Justin Bieber Turns Craftsman, Makes A Necklace For Darling Hailey Baldwin)
