Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribéry to sue CNN for $1.5m over picture infringement

The Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribéry is suing CNN for $1.5m (£996,965) in damages after the American broadcaster used a picture of the former France international to illustrate a story on cryotherapy, his lawyer said on Friday.
“Mr Franck Ribéry … never gave his authorisation and his consent for the use of this picture … of his image … to this publication,” Carlo Alberto Busa told French radio RMC.
The picture, which appeared on CNN’s Twitter feed, features Ribéry in a cryotherapy box with the following headline: “Woman found frozen in cryotherapy chamber, health trend called into question.“
Busa added: “Mr Franck Ribéry and his family instructed me to go to French court to seek damages of at least $1.5m.“
