Jude Law is suing a Canadian fireplace company for allegedly using his image in advertising without his consent.

The Hollywood star has filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court claiming Paloform, an up-scale fireplace firm based in Toronto, used pictures of him on its website and Facebook and Pinterest pages without permission, according to TMZ.

The suit humbly describes Law as "one of the most recognised, highly regarded, critically acclaimed, and commercially valuable motion picture actors in the world," according to the Toronto Sun. His IMDB profile was included in the paperwork just in case the court didn't believe him.

A quick look at Paloform's website and Facebook and Pinterest pages shows that if the company was using images of Law, they have since been removed.
