Green Day Is Being Sued

A LOS ANGELES local artist is suing GREEN DAY for using his artwork without his permission. DERECK SELTZER created the image of a "frightened, fang-toothed face" that the band used on their website, music video and concerts during 2009.
The artist's work has been copyrighted and was never asked or compensated from the band to use his image. A member of the GREEN DAY team stated that they received the image from a reliable, responsible company and that they were unaware that they had broke any copyright issue.
