Scarlett Johansson Lawyer Demands Removal of Images from the Web

Scarlett Johansson’s lawyer has fired off letters to Web sites demanding that her photos (NSFW) be removed. The letter states that the images are “stolen copyright protected private photographs” — which basically confirms that these are authentic pictures of Scarlett. Hopefully this will put to rest rumors that the photos are fake. Will the lawyer succeed in removing these pictures from the Web?

From THR:

Scarlett Johansson and her team are not denying that the nude photos that leaked onto the web on Wednesday are in fact of her. Instead, The Avengers actress is trying to snatch them off the web as quickly as possible.

Johansson’s lawyer, Marty Singer, issued letters to websites that are running the photos. Blogger Perez Hilton confirmed on the AMP radio show with Carson Daly on Thursday morning that he had received one of these letters.

The letters state that the images are “stolen copyright protected private photographs” and should be removed from the sites.

I have some questions which need to be answered, hopefully from Scarlett herself:
If you did not want us to see your gorgeous naked body, why did you leave those photos of yourself on your phone?
Was this a career wise move of yours because you are afraid that people will forget your name

LOL - I just love that every news report of Scarlett's demands (to take her pics off the internet) will include a link to those very photos.

I'm reminded of what Dominic Dierkes said on the Indoor Kids podcast about a certain fiasco involving exclusive game trailers and the Spike VGAs. Basically, they ran a dress rehearsal with the trailer and the footage got out to the internet. Once Spike found out, the shazzled their pants and demanded they get the info back. The EP told them, "It's on the internet. It's done. It's out there."

Maybe she enjoys the beauty of her own body. And maybe it's for not only herself but for her other half. Leaving pictures of yourself in any form, bare, clothed, on a phone, or computer, should be a freedom we should have and should be a private affair. Are you suggesting that just because it seems like we're losing privacy, on a daily basis we should always be afraid of keeping our own private affairs? Privacy is essential one way or the other, and we should never be afraid of losing it.

You're the type that watches TMZ and gets off on making fun of stars, and probably just people. Stop this spreading of humiliation, and fear-based humiliation. It's not healthy for the common good.
