Demi Moore has reached an out-of court-settlement with the publishers of an Australian gossip magazine who she accused of printing her photos without permission.
The Hollywood actress launched a legal battle with the editors of New Idea over pictures that were taken at an Oscars party in 2008, which showed her posing with stars including Orlando Bloom, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Cameron Diaz.

The Ghost star alleged she paid for the photo-booth-style snaps and therefore magazine bosses breached her copyright by publishing the images without her permission.

The trial was due to start in Melbourne Federal court on Monday (27Sep10) and Moore was due to fly to Australia to testify – but the actress has avoided making a trip Down Under by reaching an out-of-court settlement.

No details about the agreement have been released.
