Barbara Streisand

Barbara Streisand’s HouseIn 2003, Barbara Streisand filed a $50 million lawsuit against Kenneth Adelman because he had posted an aerial photo of her home on his website. His website contained around 12,000 photos of the California coastline as a way to document coastal erosion.

Streisand’s house had gained virtually no attention online until she filed the lawsuit, afterwhich it became very popular.

The image at the top is not the one in question – it’s just a current photo from Microsoft Live Maps. To see the original photo, you can go here.
