Jude Law Lawsuit: Actor Sues Fireplace Maker For Using Images Of Him In Ads

Posted: Updated:

Jude Law is suing Canadian fireplace manufacturer Paloform after they used his image online and in print ad campaigns without his consent.

In the lawsuit, the 40-year-old actor alleges that his face was seen on the company's website, Facebook and Pinterest pages, as well as on numerous advertisements.

According to E! Online, the suit -- filed this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court -- states that Law is one of "the most recognized, highly regarded, critically acclaimed, and commercially valuable motion picture actors in the world" and that his face would be a huge selling point for Paloform. Reportedly, Law's IMDB profile was included in the paperwork -- just in case the court didn't believe he was a Hollywood star.

The "Side Effects" actor is asking for general and special damages and an immediate permanent injunction preventing the Toronto-based business from any further use of his name or image for commercial purposes.

As of late, it appears Paloform has removed any images of Law from their website and/or social media accounts.
