A law firm with a history of filing many copyright-infringement lawsuits targeted NPR again in a suit filed Monday.

The most recent suit claims that NPR violated the copyright of VSL Dokumentikos Namai, a Lithuanian media company, by using photos in a December 2016 website article, “A Mummy’s DNA May Help Solve The Mystery Of The Origins Of Smallpox,” without permission.

Liebowitz Law Firm has represented clients in two other cases against NPR. One was settled, and the other was voluntarily dismissed.

Liebowitz has filed more than 500 copyright suits since January 2016, according to a Bloomberg BNA article. It has represented VSL Dokumentikos Namai in copyright suits against other media companies, including the New York Times in a case that was settled.
