p.1 #1 · Copyright violation (itunes)

Hi all,

Slightly left-field copyright issue here, in that one of my images has been used without permission for the cover art for a 3 track EP and single that is available (for money) on itunes and various other digital music sites. I don't think it's been released on physical media.

The record label who released it looks a pretty small affair.

Wouldn't mind getting a small payout for their use to be honest, any suggestions on the best approach for this? I'm in the UK, and the record label was previously in the UK but appears to operate out of Brazil now.

Contact the label and inform them. I'm sure they would be very against piracy. Explain to them how would they like all their songs to be pirated, tell them you can fax them an invoice, if they don't comply, make sure the image is copyrighted, and inform iTunes.

Thanks Ben, that was pretty much my initial plan. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was some sort of international IP small claims procedure (we have one in the UK, but noone in the UK ever seems to steal my photos!).
