Agreed. I also like how the shadow on the hill behind the back of the roof rack was drawn into the shirt design.

Thanks for all of the advice and knowledge. Numlok, that is pretty sweet, thanks.

I will report back when I hear something. Nothing I hate more than when a thread has an open ending. I won't leave you guys and gals hanging.

Can someone please get me in touch with the Isaac that took this Land Cruiser photo ? If he uses Twitter, that might be easiest — I'm @cdevers there.

I'm the person that had the Jaguar photo story recently. Lawyers are involved, so I can't be any more specific than that.

I think Isaac & I probably have some interesting things to talk about here.

Thanks.

If the image wasn't registered prior to the theft, then you are not going to see large damages. This is why everyone advocates registering your images regularly. Since it was not registered, name your happy price and invoice them like they hired you. You may win in court, but all the cost and aggravation won't be worth it.

Seeking some advice, found this thread and figured why start another one.......hope the O/P doesn't mind otherwise I'll just delete it and start another.

Obviously, I'm not a professional photographer so would appreciate any advice.

In a nutshell, I posted some photographs that I had taken at a National MC Road-racing (AMA) event on my Facebook album. One of the advertised sponsors on one of the racebikes I photographed saw the image, 'liked it' and said he was going to use it as his profile pic. At this point, I was ok with it being used as such. This sponsor/company is a local business that runs a MC trackday school/club that I actually used to be a member of and rode with on occasion.

Well, after being wrongfully charged for this years annual membership, I go to their website to send them a note that I was not joining this season and they need to reverse the charge on my credit card. Well, while doing this I noticed that on their main sign up 'trackday page' they have several photo's one of which is my photo that was taken from my FB page. I've already asked him to remove the photo OR at least give me credit for that photo since one of the other photo's had another photographer name on the image, I requested this via email when he contacted me to confirm the membership cancellation. He totally ignored my request and the photo is still on the site after a week or so.

As stated, I'm clueless on what to do or if I should bother trying. I did read many replies here and I also went to the photoattorney site. I'm just wanting to get some opinions if this is something worth pursuing, as the infringer is no GAP nor is he selling a product with my image on it and I haven't registered the photo's. Good Lord, registering photo's?!?!? What's the cost on doing this anyway?

I think being ignored is my biggest gripe at this point.

Thanks in advance!

First, e-mail your request again, this time, clearly stated in the very first sentence.

Rule #1 about e-mail.. People do not read the entire note.

I work for a large corporation where people get hundreds or thousands of e-mails each day. I have found that if the very first sentence of an e-mail does not clearly tell the recipient what is expected, the request often does not get acted on. I have found that by rewording my e-mails (because it doesn't come naturally) so that the request is the first sentence and the explanation follows, I get much better results. By your description, I am guessing your request was the second paragraph.. He never saw it. He read the first paragraph, stopped, acted on it and replied.

Its highly ironic that the original poster, Sparkplug, would complain about a stolen image but yet he posts his friend's image without credit or attribution.
