Shaune Bagwell watch: swimsuit model claims her artist's rights violated by Awfulplasticsurgery.com


You may not consider Shaune Bagwell an artist, but yo, art's in the eye of the beholder, no?

Shaune, the swimsuit model formerly married to Astros first baseman Jeff Bagwell who sold advertising space across her chest to Goldencasino.com, is claiming that the Web site "awfulplasticsurgery.com" has violated her rights as an artist by infringing on copyright law.

The Web site has criticized plastic surgery it says the model has undergone. Bagwell's letter was faxed to Google, Inc.


The purpose of this letter is to notify you that an online company
has stolen my image(s) and are using them illegally.

I am stating the Digital Millennium Copyright act as the portion of
the law under which my rights as an artist are protected.

The copyrighted work at issue appears on awfulplasticsurgery.com.

Infringing web page link:

My person information where Google may contact me is:

I do not have current information on how to contact the administrator
of the website in question.

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials
described above on the allegedly infringing web pages is not
authorized by the copyright owner, it's (sic) agent,or the law.

I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the
notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am
authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that
is allegedly infringed.

Regards,

Shaune Bagwell [private] P.1

Shaune reportedly is auctioning off ad space on her legs and forehead, according to media reports. Artistic ads, we're sure.
