Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Who took the images?
ok let me get my response ready please
If you took the original images then you will automatically own their copyright and the person cannot use them without your permission, otherwise it would amount to a breach of copyright. You may certainly contact the person, advise them they are using copyrighted material without your permission and request that these images are removed immediately or further legal action would follow, up to commencing legal proceedings to apply your rights.
Similar rules would apply if he is passing off your work as his own and that could again amount to a breach of your intellectual property rights. The same request can be made on that basis.
If he refuses to act as requested, then you need to consider whether you should take further action. That would usually involve making a claim in the courts for damages or an injunction to prevent him from further using your material. Only use it as a last resort though and try to resolve this by direct contact first, as suggested above.
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
you are welcome, all the best for now
