"The Hills" star Lauren Conrad is guilty of jacking 2 surfing dogs for use on her website ... according to a new lawsuit.
Okay, LC didn't walk off with the actual pups -- Incredible Features Inc. says she merely stole 2 photos of the athletic pets, and slapped them up on her website.
As lawsuits go, it's a pretty entertaining read. IFI says, "In the dog eat dog world of online content ... Lauren Conrad, a sophisticated website operator, is cognizant of the value of high-quality photography." IFI says it owns the images that are now on her site.
The suit points out Lauren's site isn't a blog but a "commercial enterprise through which Conrad shills her Kohl's clothing line amongst other things."
Kohl's cheap shot aside -- IFI wants Lauren to take down the images, and it wants any profits she earned on the dogs' backs. We've reached out to LC ... no word back yet.
