Sarah Palin over misuse of photo on website, Facebook

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was sued Friday in federal court by a New Jersey-area newspaper publisher for alleged copyright infringement over her use of a 9/11 photograph.

The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court by North Jersey Media Group Inc., according to the Associated Press.

The publisher is accusing Palin’s SarahPac of posting a copy of an iconic September 11 photo on her website and Facebook page without their explicit permission.

The photo shows three New York City firefighters raising an American flag over the rubble left in the wake of the World Trade Center attacks.

NJMG publishes The Record and Herald News newspapers plus 40 weekly community papers, 12 magazines and two websites. The photo was taken by Thomas E. Franklin of The Record. 

North Jersey Media Group Inc. is demanding Palin stop using the image and is seeking damages.
