Photographer Sues "Project Runway" Over Use of Photos

"Project Runway" is facing more legal problems. Marcie Cobbaert, a photographer based in St. Charles, Missouri, alleges that the show is using some of her copyrighted work without her permission by featuring photos of current contestant Laura Planck's designs without attribution, or by suggesting that the photos actually belong to the Lifetime network (the show airs on Lifetime). More here from The Hollywood Reporter; here from St. Louis Today.
