I already posted a question asking about the reimbursement coming if a photographer used a picture that was taken during the wedding for an advertisement.
Unfortunately since then it has become a bit stickier. The photographer used the picture in an ad without my sister--in-law's consent. When she found out that he had already put it in, she asked him to take the picture out.
He stated that the picture was legally his, since he took it, There was nothing in the contract that said anything either way of the pictures belonging to the photographer or the client.
Can someone help me with the legalities in this situation? Who does the picture belong to? Does the photographer have the right to use the picture without her consent? And does she have the right to deny him permission to use it?
