On second look that doesn't look like your image..it looks similar.

You are now worthy of a title.

I think it's the same image. If you look at the blue corner pad (behind the "L" in the top image), it's been tilted.

I'm done here.

So you want to whine and moan because you didn't get the answer you wanted? Grow up. Personally, I think it is your image. Registering it with the Copyright Office just gives you a little more leverage. It's not mandatory, but it's a good idea. Especially when this is something that might happen. I think that a letter from an IP attorney will accomplish more than you sending a pissed off e-mail. Yes, you should be pissed off, btw.

So funny. No, I'm still here- me, the OP. And yes, I absolutely took that shot. It's not mistakable for any other existing shot in existence- it was the Brad Imes/gogoplata shot that shocked the MMA world, and it's been well documented that it was my shot since it surfaced in 2007, and was subsequently published in MMA Worldwide magazine as "Submission of the Year".

Anyhow, my plan of action (since I've already aired my feelings on the matter) is to either find an attorney that will take the case providing they only get paid if they win (or is that only with accidents?) or file a civil case myself.

Are you going to use the earnings from many hours spent fighting the case to fund a lotto ticket ?

Here are the difficulties you will run into at this point:
a) This is a COPYRIGHT violation. ONLY federal court has jurisdiction over copyright. Not small claims court...
b) If your image is not registered (a simple online process and $35 for up to 1 year's worth of pictures) then you can only get awarded "the money you lost" and you don't get attorney's fees.
c) You ADMITTED that the photo is worth $200. (That would be their argument...c.f. your 1st email)
d) You might invest in having a lawyer draft a letter, but good luck if they don't pony up.
e) Few IP lawyer would take your case on contingency, especially if there is no copyright registration.

I thought about this. The only advice I have is to move the Ring Card Girls to the top left position in your website.

This statement would raise alot of questions. The $200 is not a shot in the foot but the prior publication may be.
