So a guy I used to call a friend, has waged a war on my over some petty internet bs. He is making claim to "destroy my reputation"
That is all backstory. The important fact is, a photo of him appeared in a magazine with the photo credit being given to him however it was a photo I took. I called the editor, who I know personally, and they felt terrible for not verifying the source, and have offered me a small check for compensation.
However, here is my question. The guy is using multiple photos I have taken on his website. If he was still a good buddy, I wouldn't care, but the fact he has turned into a complete lunatic, threatening me, I would like him to remove all my photos that I took from his website. Can I issue a cease and desist? Is it just a request to remove my photos?
Some of the photos were simply as much as "Hey man, here is my camera, take a quick photo" and I did. Others, were me going out of my way to put myself in a strategic photographic position and taking photos on my own without request. I sent him the photo in the magazine because he requested it to send to "his sponsors"
The magazine is not one of his sponsors.
I didn't give him permission to use my photo in a magazine
