Happy New Year to you all. Been a while.
What should i do about an ex-employee who has set up his own business and used a selection of photos of my projects on his website.
All the images he has used are of areas that he was involved with.
However he never asked my permission and also one of the jobs was for a designer i do work for and she has requested that i credit any images i use where she has designed the work. He obviously has not done because he is not aware of her requirement. That alone puts me in a tricky position.
Its put my nose out of joint as the images are of areas of complete projects that i designed and managed. He has used them to pad out his website as he does not have enough of his own work yet. His headline images on his website are of the garden designer project. Its a level of project i have put 20 years of self employment to achieve and he feels he can just splash it around his website without earning his stripes so to speak.
I plan to have a friendly chat with him but i feel quite strongly about this so wondered what other courses of action i can take if it came to it.
