I'm new to this forum. I really need some help/advice regarding the topic i posted.
The situation is like this:
Person Z use my photo that i took of him/her using his sister's camera. He/she is using it for his/her university(Local SG uni) under his/her school for his/her election of being an event coordinator. Him/her created a facebook group (public group setting) and posted the photo as well as using it as cover photo. The content of the photo is him/her with a very nice background of one of singapore's iconic building that drafted our skyline. There is edit of the photo with words to vote for him/her and where when the voting will be held. Him/her use my photo without asking me or telling me about this event that he/she is involved.
I happen to chance upon it today. This thing is on going for 3 more days, and has page has been created for 7 days or more. If i didnt chance on the page i wouldn't have known and will be in the dark.
What i've done so far for now: dropped he/she a fb msg and also texted him/her. He/she just replied my text(means he/she acknowledged that i know)
Seeking advise what can be done. Its very upsetting and quite frustrating when people use the photo you taken without permission for something quite major nor am I credited or mentioned. I mean its basic courtesy if you all can understand. He/she could have just ask or tell me. Thank you very much everyone. Help!
Thank you in advance!
I'm really sorry if this topic is irrelevant for the forum.
The sad thing is that we were friends when i took the photos. Is like that moment you see that scenery and you can visualise that it would be awesome and you must capture it so you ask your friend to freeze that you can capture it. its just a normal day hang out with that friend. Unfortunately, due to some issues way before this particular incident that happen now we decided that we cant no longer with friends. That person used that picture as profile pic on facebook before. i approach that person and ask him/her to remove it and change it to something else and so that person change it to something else. And now that stranger is using that same photo i took(which is the one he/she used before as profile pic) as his/her election for his/her degree programme to elect as an event coordinator. Honestly speaking as an event coordinator it is basic courtesy to just at least ask for permission.
