Justin Bieber

Party With Me ...

I Own You

1/7/2013 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_JUSTIN_BIEBER_COMPOSITE3Justin Bieber's people have smartly tried to contain the teenage singer's hijinks by attempting to make it clear to anyone who parties with him ... any pictures snapped are automatically the property of Justin. 

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Justin's people routinely place a sign in places where Justin parties -- a sign that says any and all photos taken at the party do NOT belong to the people who took them -- they all belong to JB.

It's a literal and figurative sign of the concern Justin's people are showing for a famous teenager with a penchant for risk-taking.

As for the photos taken last week in that Newport Beach Hotel room showing Justin smoking a blunt, our sources say if there was a sign it wasn't obvious ... because the people who took pictures saw nothing.

In addition to signage, we're told Justin's security people are supposed to "manage" private situations like the one in the hotel room, but apparently security didn't do its job ... or they've been co-opted by Justin.

Enough Already    

What an arrogant, over rated, under developed, bag of bones, POS. For a 19 year old he sure is full of himself. When he was first started out, he couldn't WAIT to have his picture plastered everywhere. And now that he thinks his s**t doesn't stink and he's holy than thou his picture can't be taken???? Seriously? GET OVER YOURSELF JB. Your (few) fans made you who you are today and you wouldn't be where you are if you weren't photograhped. I get that "he's only 19 and he's experientmenting". But sorry, his life is totally different than ours. We all know good and well that if he were busted for something, the law wouldn't apply to him. So that would be OK, right? You are the ONLY one responsible for YOUR actions. No one else. Period. So stop blaming the paps, your friends, etc. If you don't like your pictures "smeared" everywhere then stop doing stupid s**t!!!

Sorry, but that won't fly in court. People's phones/cameras are their property.
-
Justin/his people cannot enforce any such contract, unless they get every person in attandance to SIGN something.

I'll show up at his next party, holding a sign that says, "Any and all persons who walked into this party - I OWN you now and have the right to sell you as property or sell your services at my will."

Oh please - the bottom line is that it's not that he owns pictures taken of himself but Holy Cow - that he can't trust the people he partied with... When you smoke out - you trust people will keep it on the down-low. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT!
