Hey everybody. I need some advice.
Way back in September of 2004, a company contacted me requesting permission to use a photo of mine in a video they were making for their 75th anniversary. I granted that permission so long as I received a credit for the photo and a copy of the video. Silly of me to be nice and just grant permission, but the request was respectful and I felt it a nice gesture.
If you're interested, the photo is here:
I never received the video, so I don't know if they bothered to give me credit.
I have sent three emails - one to the original requestor, and subsequently two others to corporate officers as high as the V.P. of Marketing and Sales, now requesting monetary payment for the photo (because they didn't follow through with their part of the agreement). But, not too suprisingly, they do not respond.
What are my options? If there's anyone out there with experience like this, or has a legal background, I would be very much interested in hearing your perspective.
