If you take a photograph of somebody, that picture doesn’t actually belong to you. Instead, what you’re doing is borrowing that person’s likeness. Which means that not only can that person use the picture without paying you, but they should be immune from being sued for doing so – and in fact, they should get paid simply for being in it.

That’s the world according to Calvin Broadus, aka Snoop Dogg. The hip-hop superstar was commenting on the lawsuit brought against fellow rapper Nas (Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones) by photographer Al Pereira.
