Jared Leto Loses Lawsuit Against TMZ Over Stolen Video Critiquing Taylor Swift

Jared Leto has lost the lawsuit he filed against TMZ and Warner Bros. after a video was posted on the website showing footage of him critiquing Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album last year.

The 44-year-old actor and musician asserted a copyright infringement claim and said that he had hired a videographer to shoot the private footage, which was then sold to TMZ.

TMZ argued that Jared had never owned the video and they had been granted a license to use it by the videographer.

The judge ruled that the video was not made as a work-made-for-hire for Jared and his company as the videographer wasn’t an employee and there was no written agreement about ownership.

    Embarrassing for him. He lost his relationship with Taylor Swift and got no money out of the deal. Maybe he learned to keep his mouth shut.
