Street Harassment Model Shoshana Roberts’ Lawsuit Against Google, Hollaback!, etc.

Model/actress Shoshana Roberts made headlines awhile back when she made a video, titled “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman”, to illustrate the issue of “street harassment”.

In a recently-filed $500,000 lawsuit, she asserts against various defendants (including Rob Bliss Creative LLC, Hollaback! Inc., Google, and YouTube) the following claims:

[Q]uantum meruit, breach of contract, fraud, unjust enrichment, violations of Plaintiff’s rights of publicity and of privacy, and violations of N.Y. Civil Rights Law Sections 50-51 arising out of defendants’ preparation and knowing use, distribution and dissemination of videos containing plaintiff’s creative content, performance, image, likeness and persona for purposes of advertising or trade without her prior written consent.
