Apple, photographer settle ‘Retina’ eyeball image lawsuit


Apple, photographer settle ‘Retina’

Apple and Swiss photographer Sabine Liewald have settled a lawsuit involving the alleged misuse of an eyeball image used during one of Apple‘s keynote presentations.

News of the settlement came in a court-ordered dismissal dated last Wednesday. The two parties were scheduled to meet for a pretrial conference earlier today.

Terms were not disclosed, and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The original complaint said Apple misused one of Liewald’s images (seen above) by including it in a promotion for its latest MacBook Pro computers with the Retina display. Liewald argued that Apple acquired the rights to use the image of a model’s eye (complete with makeup) for “layout purposes only,” as opposed to commercial use.

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York last October, sought a trial by jury to determine damages and potential lost profits.
