My girlfriend recently shot some photos at an event, she posted them to her personal website, and the company that owns the business that the event was hosted at took them from her site without her permission. They cropped out her watermark, and then printed them in a magazine with out giving her any credit for the pictures.
She wants to know if she contacts them that she has the right to demand some sort of compensation or perhaps a note in a following issue giving her proper credit. Has anyone dealt with something like this before? Any suggestions on how to respond to this?
We both practice photography as a hobby, and in a way she's flattered that her images were liked so much, but she's very upset that they were stolen, and used without giving her any sort of credit at all.
