Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
Did you take the photos yourself? Please note this is not always an instant service and I may not be able to reply immediately. However, rest assured that I am dealing with your question and will get back to you today. Thanks
Thank you very much for clarifying. First of all, I am sorry to hear about the issues you have experienced in your situation.
As you took the photos you will have copyright over them automatically by law. Therefore, others cannot use them unless they had your consent, which clearly they don’t.
You can initially approach these people to advise them of this and point out their breach and also contact the sites they use to see if they can do anything, like take them down on your behalf.
If neither of these work, your only option legally is to go to court and seek out an injunction ordering their removal, or pursue them for damages, which will likely be minimal here, probably several hundred pounds only.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
