Man (then, baby) from Nirvana "Nevermind" album cover sues band

Well, I mean... maybe he has a case here? Though maybe he'd need to sue his parents, instead? Eh.

Lawyers are getting richer every day. Them and therapists too. Take note, kids.

He doesn't have a case. He's admitted in several articles that he's recreated the pose as a teen and an adult for the anniversaries. Plus who the hell would know that it was him on the cover of that album unless he was telling people? He's looking for a cash grab, nothing more.

I don't know. I think the "child pornography" angle is particularly a puzzling path to go down (as that picture couldn't be remotely construed as being sexualized) but you know, let's say your parents signed you up and got paid $500 to use a then-new picture of you at 5 years old for a movie poster for a movie that goes on to make 3 billion. Even 20 years later, the same producers are still using that movie poster for blu-ray covers, re-releases, etc., and still "making money" off of it. Meanwhile, your parents only got $500 when you were a kid and you got $0, and still get $0.

I'm just saying there might be something to that.
