Playboy drops suits against Sharp and IX Daily

Playboy has dropped copyright lawsuits against two Canadian magazine publishers for reproducing revealing photos of supermodel Kate Moss. According to a Canadian Press story, named in the suits were Contempo Publishing of Toronto, which publishes Sharp -- Canada's magazine for men -- and Montreal's Indecent Xposure, which publishes the online IX Daily, which features articles on fashion, music and culture in Canada.

IX Daily had published the Kate Moss spread that had appeared two years ago in Playboy. It took down the offending material as soon as Playboy objected in mid-2014, said founder Nick Younes, who called the suits, which totalled $100,000, "crazy". Sharp published its Moss pictorial with numerous images under the heading of "The Kate Moss Anthology."

"We settled out of court," said Bob Sotiriadis, the Montreal lawyer acting for Playboy.
