London: Dutch supermodel Lara Stone has won damages from French Playboy, which published unauthorised pictures of her.
The model, who has won a ‘significant’ amount from the magazine, plans to donate the money to Great Ormond Street hospital.
“No woman wants photos of them to be published in Playboy without permission. I’m very pleased to have won the case, although of course I would rather not have had to take legal action at all,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying in a statement released by her law firm Schillings.
The case was heard in a court in Paris under French image rights legislation.
The statement also informed that Playboy has also been ordered to publish a prominent legal statement in the next edition of the magazine confirming the court has found it has infringed Stone``s image rights.
