The surviving members of NIRVANA as well as the estate of Kurt Cobain have been sued by Spencer Elden, the man who claims he was the baby featured on the cover of the band's "Nevermind" album. Elde...

Lol, how pathetic is this.

He’s got famous thanks to the album cover and now tries to desperately grab cash by suing the band. Far from child pornography.

Of course, imagine thinking that simply having child genitalia in a piece of media makes it child pornography, that’s just fucking sick.

Several lawyers are interviewed about the subject in LoudWire’s article. Here’s one good quote:

Another attorney, Brown Rudnick’s Michael Bowe, adds, “This seems like an unserious college philosophy argument in a bar. Most serious-minded people would — and have for decades, with respect to this image — understood this was not sexually explicit or suggestive. Just like my parents’ home movies of me in the tub as a baby were not. I think one could debate whether it is the best parenting decision to let someone take pictures of your naked baby underwater for a rock album cover. And he may have a fair complaint about not being paid or about his privacy being invaded unfairly then or now. And maybe they should just respect his concerns now out of decency. But those are different issues.”

Of course, and I would totally agree with that view, but it is not what’s being raised here, he literally just wants money.
