A PAC is using one of my photos without permission

  1. In the video linked below, a PAC used one of my photos at :56. I was never contacted about this.

    Would you all consider this Fair Use? I'm inclined to send them an invoice.



  2. You can try to block its use or collect a fee, and you'd have the right if the conditions are as you say.

    However, as well-known musicians have found out, it's very, very hard to succeed, much less collect damages.

    Some people are notorious for not paying even when they have a contract.

  3. Thank you. I doubt I'll get compensated, but I'll reach out to them anyway.
  4. Update. I sent an email to the PAC and within 24 hours their lawyer emailed me and asked me what my fee was. I sent him an invoice and he paid it. Check cleared today. Happy ending.

  5. Oh, by the way, the video doesn't work. It says that it is private.

    And thanks for the follow-up. Nice to know the ending, good or bad.
