I'm not quite on the DS level of being a photog, but I work every day towards improving and learning. It is still my photo I may not be a famous photog, but I sure am tired of people using my photos with out crediting me. I had one not to long ago pop up on mazda and mazda fitment facebook group pg's, 1500+ likes, not one of those 1500 people knew I took that picture..

In the link above the roller on the very left is used for advertisement of Megan Racings coil overs... I lurk this thread occasionally, never I thought I would be the one with the stolen photo a couple years ago, I just read through the whole thing and this is what I have come up with.

Here is what I have so far I need some help I never have approached this before... Should I submit an email saying this, or contact my lawyer who is a pretty powerful figure. Its a hassle, to contact him though, hes a friend of a friend, type deal. Here is the email I wrote up again, any help would be greatly appreciated. Also I wouldn't mind scoring a set of their coil-overs on top of the invoice if anyone has any ideas how to state that.. Seeing I do have a Miata lol, thanks in advance guys. I was thinking maybe a PS I am a huge fan of your products, any extra compensation is welcome. Also I don't want to over price my photo but, it's hard to judge, I'd prefer not to have to take legal action(I'll go there if I have to)

Dear _______,

Thank you for using my image, the rolling shot of the blue Miata, which is being used to advertise your product (EZ Street coil-overs) on your web page. I am flattered you appreciated my photo enough to use for your advertisement, and would be more then happy to send you more images for use on your website if needed. However, those images are made with my heart, sweat and soul. In usual cases, I would be charging you a licensing fee and statuatory damages. I am willing to understand your oversight of using my image without my permission. Since you found my first image with in standards for use of advertising, I am also willing to offer you a discount on any other license fees for any further images you intend to use. I am also willing to extend the 2nd year licensing to you free of charge as a gesture of goodwill.. Attached below low is an invoice of xxx-x USD; Payment greater than 30 days constitutes copyright infringement and I will instruct my lawyer to issue a cease and decease letter, as you have used my photograph for commercial reasons.

Yikes, that's no good. I think the approach you've taken is a good one. I might even wait to say that you have a lawyer, and just wait to hear back from them first before you say anything remotely threatening. If they tell you to fuck off, or if you don't hear from them, then it's time to whip out the big guns. But in my experience, I find you accomplish much more when you approach the infringing party in an amicable way.


Mr. GF Williams, someone liked your Veyron in the tunnel enough to use it in a advertisement... http://www.goldrushrally.com/content.php?2...-Silver-Sponsor

I'm new and suck as a photographer, but the few things I have had featured I take a lot of pride in. I vote sticky.
