LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A photograph from 30 years ago is staging its vengeance against Mötley Crüe.
The photograph was used on a sweatshirt and has created quite a fuss for the 80s hair band.
The Crüe and Live Nation are being sued by Ron Toma who claims he owns the copyright to the famous "belt buckle photo" …. taken by photog Michael Pinter back in 1981, according to TMZ.
The band used the photo on the cover of their hit album "Too Fast for Love."
But according to Toma's lawsuit, filed in Illinois Northern District Court, Crüe and Live Nation stole the image without permission and used it on some signature hoodies they're selling on their websites.
Toma is asking a judge to step in ASAP to administer some justice — blocking MC and Live Nation from using the image without permission, according to TMZ.
