Justin Bieber is being sued by a photographer by posting a copyright photo of himself to his instagram.

Robert Barbera took the photo of Justin and his friend Rich Wilkerson. And Robert owns the copyright of the image.

Back in March of this year, Justin posted the image (below) without permission to post it, or without licensing the image to his Instagram page which has over 120 million followers.
