TORONTO – Jude Law has taken an up-scale Canadian fireplace maker, Paloform, to court for apparently wrongly using his face to advertise its wares on Facebook.
TMZ.com on Friday reported the British actor filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging the Toronto-based concrete fire pit maker used his face on its website and Facebook page without his permission.

To back his case, Law refers to himself in the lawsuit as "one of the most recognized, highly regarded, critically acclaimed, and commercially valuable motion picture actors in the world," according to the report.
Paloform’s Facebook page on Friday appeared to no longer feature any photos or likeness of Law.
