Supermodel Joanna Krupa Resolves Lawsuit for Alleged Unauthorized Use of Her Image

JOANNA KRUPA is a renowned supermodel, actress and television host who has been voted “sexiest woman in the world” and “sexiest top model in the world” by magazines throughout the world.  Krupa has graced the cover of approximately 100 magazines, such as GQ, Maxim, and Esquire, competed on the hit show Dancing with the Stars, and appeared on top television shows like Las Vegas and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.  She is the host of the upcoming syndicated television show Ultimate Women Challenge, and recently hosted Poland’s Next Top Model.
When Krupa’s image was used in an advertisement without her permission, she hired Attorney Marc A. Wites of Wites & Rogers to file a complaint for monetary damages in federal court.  The lawsuit alleged that sometime in early 2010, the Newport Beachside Resort in South Beach created and distributed marketing materials that included her photograph for an event called the “WMC Hangover Party.”  Krupa claimed that her image was featured on flyers and posted on several pages on the Internet including, but not limited to, a page on Facebook, and that the resort never contacted her to obtain permission to use her photograph and/or likeness in connection with any event.   Newport denied all of Krupa’s allegations.
The lawsuit was settled in February 2011 pursuant to a confidential agreement, and was subsequently dismissed with prejudice.
