Hey... I recently hosted an event where the local media came in and took pictures without permission, and then displayed them on their site giving improper credit to those involved. Meaning that they gave credit to some people that were in NO WAY involved with the event.
We did have contracted photographers on site who were paid for their services. Who were also asked not to publicly display any photos that were taken, but they were just asked to give them all to us for us to go through and decide what could be displayed.
There are some minors in the photo's that were taken by the media. This was technically a private event. There was a cover charge.
Does anybody here know what sort of legal action I might be able to take? I know the media person involved and she is not going to let this go lightly. I have already contacted the publication via email and the photographers asking them to please take the pictures down from their site. So far I have not received a response.
