Photographer Takes on the Iron Man in Lawsuit

Did Marvel and Paramount try to turn the tables on a paparazzi's by using his illicit photo from the set of 'Iron Man' as a background element in the movie?

That's the contention of freelance photographer Ronnie Adams, who filed a lawsuit last week in the U.S. District Court, Central District of California. The suit accuses Marvel and Paramount, the studios that produced and distributed 'Iron Man', of unlawfully infringing Adams's copyright and engaging in unfair competition.

The photo, which appeared online on IESB.net, was apparently later seen in a scene from the film in which Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark reads a newspaper which has a front-page story about the armored avenger.
