I would like to ask how to behave in the following case, since I have no experience of such odd situations nor I have any deep legal knowledge to say if I am right or not... I hope that someone could help me!
Recently, a friend of mine told me about a picture taken by me published on a magazine... well, nice, you may say... But the odd thing is that nobody contacted me to ask permission to do that.
The picture mentioned above is this one:
Photo © Matteo Stella - Malpensa Spotters Group
As far as dimensions are concerned, it has been printed at about 1/2 A4 standard sheet format.
For what concerns the photo itself, I must admit that they have been "loyal" (well, if we can still call "loyalty" in this case...) since they have left the A.net watermark with my name: so, the picture appears like if seen on the site itself.
But what really upsets me is that the picture has been used on a magazine that is sold for money (around 7.50 € for a copy), without anyone notifying me nor anyone asking for permissions and all.
My sixth sense tells me that I could be in the "good side"...
What do you think?
Am I right to be "upset" or are they right to publish my picture without any notification apart from leaving the watermark banner?
In case, any suggestion or ideas on how to deal with them?
Thanks in advance,
