Lynyrd Skynyrd is being sued by a photographer who claims the rock band used his image of Jerry Lee Lewis in its farewell tour without proper attribution.

Larry Philpot says the group used his photo of Lewis without permission and stripped the image of its copyright management information, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in California federal court.

Philpot says he took the photo of Lewis during a 2011 performance in Memphis, registered it with the U.S. Copyright Office in 2013 and later uploaded it to Wikimedia, where users could license the work and distribute it with attribution.
