Vampire Weekend Settles Album Cover Dispute

joomplu:316Last year in January, Vampire Weekend released Contra. The album cover was a picture of model Ann Kirsten Kennis and she accused the band of using the photo without her permission. She sued the band, photographer and label for $2 million. The year-long case has finally been dismissed by a Los Angeles federal court, but now Vampire Weekend and XL Recordings are suing the photographer Tod Brody for misrepresenting the rights to the photo. To make things worse for Brody, his attorney’s have left him by himself in court for not paying his bills, so Brody has to represent himself in court. Good luck, man.
