It’s very common for divorcing couples to fight over custody of their children. But a new legal question is being raised in the celebrity divorce case of Rosie O’Donnell and her
ex-Michelle Rounds. Who gets custody of the baby pictures? This is the latest issue to be raised in a very contentious divorce proceeding.
What is clear is that a picture of the ex-couple’s 2 year old daughter was posted by Rosie O’Donnell to her instagram account. What is not clear is who owns the rights to that picture? Ms. Rounds is claiming that she was the one who took the picture; therefore, she owns the rights to it and can block it from being published anywhere. Rosie obviously feels she has rights to the picture as the child is hers and that she can post the picture where she chooses. Apparently this question will be up to the judge to answer. Depending upon how the judge rules in this case, custody of baby pictures may become a new facet of child custody disputes.
