Clint Eastwood is a Hollywood legend, his life boasts a successful career on the big screen. The 92-year-old actor is way past his prime, but is still making a massive bank. This is time he hit a jackpot by winning a big lawsuit.

Eastwood recently won a case against Norok Innovation, an internet marketing business that utilized his likeness without his permission. Garrapata owns the commercial rights to Clint Eastwood’s name and image. Naturally, his agency was also included as a  defendant in the complaint.

According to Vanity Fair, the latest verdict in this suit came out last week, which worked in Clint Eastwood’s favor. Eastwood and his company won Eastwood and his agency with $2 million in damages.

Just last year, Eastwood won his first lawsuit against Mediatonas UAB, where he was awarded $6.1 million in total damages. Copyright infringement is a big issue around Hollywood, and it’s hard to get away with, especially when big names are involved.

The string of consecutive wins for Eastwood just goes on to show the massive influence the actor has in this industry. Clint Eastwood has enjoyed a fruitful career, and he has lived long enough to witness its relevance.
