Madonna is copying Guy Boudin?

Madonna is facing legal action after the son of a French fashion photographer accused her of copyright infringement.

Guy Bourdin, born in Paris in 1928, was best known for his work with French Vogue who published his photographs from the 1950s to the 1980s. He died in 1991.

Samuel Bourdin argues that the singer's most recent promotional video, 'Hollywood' directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, included images that mirrored those taken by his late father. To see the images side by side click: Hollywood

The recent lawsuit, filed in the US District Court in Manhattan, accuses Madonna of copyright infringement for imitating imaged in at least 11 Boudin works.
