I gifted photos for a friends band. They use them for their marketing .... Facebook, flyers, and to supply to venues in case the venue wants to feature the band in their marketing materials. I'm OK with this usage.
Here's the problem .... A venue, a local brewery, has taken one of the photos and is now using it to promote their weekly Jazz and Blues night that feature other acts. Aside from that, they even took the liberty to crop in tighter thus eliminating my watermarked logo. Needless to say, I'll be contacting them tomorrow. So, how nice should I be? How would you handle this? And no, I don't like beer, so some free product on the house isn't really an option. I can overlook ignorance by a small potatoes mom and pop company, but this is a pretty big outfit with some first rate marketing help that should really know better. At the least, I want it either eliminated or to be compensated if they continue to use it. Somehow I think if I pulled an image off of their website for my for-profit use, they would be all over me. Ugh!
