Rockers Motley Crue have been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit after the iconic snap from the band's TOO FAST FOR LOVE album cover was used on merchandise.
The band and bosses at tour giant Live Nation are being sued by Ron Toma, who claims he owns the rights to the photograph, which was taken by Michael Pinter in 1981 and shows a close-up of a man wearing a belt and leather trousers.
The image features on sweatshirts sold on the band's website, and Toma has filed papers in Illinois Northern District Court accusing the two parties of using the image without permission, according to TMZ.com.
He is asking a judge to block the use of the snap on any merchandise without prior authorisation.
It's not been a good week for the band - frontman Vince Neil is now preparing to serve a two-week prison sentence stemming from a DUI arrest last year (10) after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors in Las Vegas.
