So, I just did a reverse image search for one of my editorial fashion photos and found it on the website of one of the bigger fashion magazines' website used in conjunction with a "news article" about some new makeup product. Of course the "article" is written by some freelance blogger and picture was probably photoshopped together by that person, it's still the magazine's responsibility of course since they published it, but I expect they will blame the freelancer and try to wash their hands of it.
My question then is, how do I proceed with this? Should I send them an invoice or just tell them to take it down? Does anyone here have any experience with this sort of thing? The magazine is french, but this particular website is by one of it's localized editions. I live in neither of the two countries, how does that affect my legal options?
It really pisses me off that this sort of thing is so common today, especially by a publisher that definitely should know better.
