I don't think that sueing the developper is appropriate here, the guy isn't even making money from it. He should have asked before using the picture though, just contact the author and the flightsim.com crew to let them know and they'll probably remove the file.

I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago, with a 'wing view' add-on for FS2004. I just mailed the website hosting the file and they immediately deleted the file and said every single further upload by that person would get rejected...
The author of the file replied that he just asked his friends for wing view pics and that he didn't know the pic was made by somebody else. May I have my doubts about that?

Frenkly, as the guy is obviously not making any money with it, I don't really care. If it were an airline, now that would be an entirely diffrent matter.
I have named and shamed him in quite a few aviation and FS forums...I guess that is enough punishment.
BTW, his A320 cockpit addon doesn't even work
