WOOD RIDGE, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey mother is suing a production company after an instructional breast-feeding video she appeared in was taken by a third party and used to create pornography.

A federal court judge ruled last week that Maryann Sahoury's lawsuit against the Meredith Corporation could proceed.

Sahoury and her 1-month old daughter demonstrated breast-feeding techniques in a 2010 video designed to help new mothers. Months later, Sahoury Googled herself and saw numerous links to pornographic sites and videos.

A Google search of her infant daughter's name also led to pornographic sites. Sahoury says a producer told her her last name would not be used in the video, but it was, according to court documents.

The Iowa-based production company says Sahoury signed a release allowing it to do so.
