Green Day sued by artist for using image without permission

Posted on

Artist Dereck Seltzer has filed a suit against Green Day claiming that Scream Icon, his image of a frightened face he created and copyrighted, has been used without pay or permission by the band on their website, onstage, and in a video, according to court documents obtained by EW.

The group’s lawyer has said in a public statement that they received the image from what they believed to be a reputable third party, and were unaware of any copyright issues.
