Hailey Clauson's Parents Suing Urban Oufitters
'Parents sue Urban Outfitters for $28million after 'salacious' image of daughter, 15, used on T-shirts'


Quote:
Clothes store Urban Outfitters is being sued for using sexually suggestive pictures of a 15-year-old model on some of its merchandise.
The 'salacious' images, taken in March 2010, showed the girl - named this morning in the New York Post as Hailey Clauson - with her legs spread in a provocative pose.
Her parents are suing photographer Jason Lee Parry, Urban and two other stores for $28million damages, claiming they did not give permission for the photographs to be used on T-shirts and other apparel.

Hailey is now 16 and has worked in New York and Paris for designers including Gucci, Donna Karan and Oscar de la Renta.
The photo shoot was conducted with the parents approval. Filed in Manhattan on Thursday, the lawsuit alleges: 'She is posed in a blatantly salacious manner with her legs spread, without a bra, revealing portions of her breasts.
'The image of Teen in a spread eagle position making her crotch area the focal point of the image may portray a child in a sexually suggestive manner and may be in violation of one or more federal and/or state laws.'

It accuses Mr Parry of making 'her crotch area the focal point of the image', adding that it also appears to reveal 'what some observers believe to be pubic hair.'
The portrayal 'forces' Clauson, now 16, 'to be the object of prurient interests and provides wallpaper for the likes of paedophiles,' the lawsuit says.
The T-shirt is not available in UK branches of Urban Outfitters.
It is also claimed that Mr Parry - who specialises in topless shots - agreed never to release the image after a complaint for the girl's agent at the time.
According to the New York Daily News, other pictures also show her with beer and riding a motorcycle without a helmet.

I always thought that photoshoot was super creepy and I think most people in Hailey's thread agreed. Glad her parents are doing something about it. Hailey's natural sex appeal in spite of her age is undeniable but that doesn't mean photographers and clients have any right to exploit that.

Really? Have HC's parents not seen her work prior to about 1 year ago? Seems like all of her earlier work was salacious and sexual, and apparently it didn't bother them then.

They didn't mind their daughter to be photographed in that manner in the first place , so why start bitching about it.It seems to me that they are pissed that they are not making any money off it.

^ I agree.

Funny, I was at a local Urban Outfitters in NYC yesterday and some workers were in a buzz about it. I was able to find the full pic on the internet. So, whats the big deal? I mean, is this not the norm these days? I saw the pic and didn't think anything "sexual" nor did it phase me a bit. Maybe I'm just numb to it (similar images are all around NYC), but I just thought of it as marketing to the youth and what they want to wear.

Anyway, all of a sudden her parents are outraged of the shirt? " They're just major hypocrites and want to capitalize on their daughter's success. It's all about the money.

Couple of quotes from another article posted in the New York Post:

"Southern California girl Hailey Clauson -- who has worked in New York and Paris for designers including Gucci, Donna Karan and Oscar de la Renta -- claims the "blatantly salacious" shot has damaged her reputation and may even violate kiddie-porn laws."

The suit says Parry -- who specializes in topless shots -- agreed never to release it after Clauson's then-agent from Ford Models complained

Parry, 32, insisted that the girl's parents were present during the March 2010 photo shoot and gave him permission to publish the pictures.

Parry also said, "The images got stole from me" and slapped onto T-shirts after they were posted on a number of blogs.

oh, come on, everybody knows JL Parry's type of photography, IMO. He is always so provocative. So their parents shouldnt have let him take pictures of her in the first place.

About the permission of making public the pics, well, that's another story, and idk if he had permission or not. But anyway, is good to hear that some people think IS NOT GOOD TO TAKE PICTURES OF TEENS IN SUCH A PROVOCATIVE WAY. Despite if they are suing just because of money or whatever.

Yeah, it seems like only now that she has been getting some high-profile work, that they suddenly care about her reputation.

I understand they are in their right of taking legal action against UO for using her image without their agreement or the photographer's but isn't $28 million a lot??

I like Hailey but this is BS. She has been in so many "sexualized" photos before and now her parents are making a stink about it? They're just pissed they weren't going to get any profits off the shirt Ridiculous, imo.

^Looks like her parents were worried about her career, too. But if they win the lawsuit and get the $28millions then who cares about a high fashion model career anymore?

Urban Outfitters Sued for Selling T-shirts Printed With Sexy Photos of a 15-Year-Old Girl
8/19/11 at 2:20 PM 5Comments


Urban Outfitters.
Photo: Konstantin Sergeyev

The parents of an unnamed 15-year-old girl are suing photographer Jason Lee Parry and Urban Outfitters for using provocative pictures of their daughter on T-shirts and other items. Weirdly, the lawsuit states that the parents didn't have a problem with the photo shoot itself, which involved "sexually suggestive" poses "revealing portions of her breasts"; rather, they're annoyed that the pictures were distributed without their permission. Also, they're asking that their identities remain secret because their daughter is apparently sort of famous:


The parents ask that their names and the girl's identity not be revealed because she is well known in the modeling industry and "her image and identity have been exposed on national TV and in other media to the general public."



In case this didn't already sound creepy enough, the parents are requesting a whopping $28 million in damages.
