Celebrity Lawyer Threatening Google With $100M Lawsuit Over Nude Leaks

Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer represents many of the women affected by the Fappening. Dozens, even! That being the case, he’s gone ahead and sent a letter to Google founders Larry Page, Sergey Brin and even Eric Schmidt threatening their company with a $100 million lawsuit and comparing their inaction in the removal of ALL the images to the NFL’s handling of the Ray Rice debacle.

In the letter seen by Page Six, Singer says they sent a notice to remove images four weeks ago, but many still remain on BlogSpot and YouTube. Singer alleges Google has failed “to act expeditiously, and responsibly to remove the images, but in knowingly accommodating, facilitating, and perpetuating the unlawful conduct. Google is making millions and profiting from the victimization of women.” He’s one exclamation mark away from calling them rapists.

Continues Singer, “Because the victims are celebrities with valuable publicity rights you do nothing — nothing but collect millions of dollars in advertising revenue … as you seek to capitalize on this scandal rather than quash it. Like the NFL, which turned a blind eye while its players assaulted and victimized women and children, Google has turned a blind eye while its sites repeatedly exploit and victimize these women.”

I wonder if Marty Singer thinks Google has a windowless room filled with 100’s of interns whose only job is to respond to DMCA notices from celebrities. It’s not like for every image that gets taken, 100s more go up and it’s not like they don’t have other DMCA requests to respond to. They’re clearly dragging their feet to profit off the pictures.

They don’t have 100’s of interns in windowless rooms but they could if they want to.
