Legal advise needed

Hey Guys/Girls-
I had something come up yesterday and I was wondering how I should approach it. RedXtreme and I had a picture taken in Hawaii at the Pro Bowl in which the photogragher it profitting pretty well from. He has sold it to Maxim Magazine and now to Hellsberg Diamond/KC Star. My question is I know that a public domain photo can be sold by the photographer but that photographer sold it to Hellsberg Diamond who turned that into advertisement. The problem is I haven't given anyone permission to use photo for anything and especially not to a company making money off an image of us. I looked up laws on this and from what I'm understanding you can use a photo in editoral but not advertising without permission. Any thoughts?

The photographer has the right to take those pictures left and right as long as you don't have a reasonable expectation of privacy but when it comes to an image the photog can profit from the game totally changes. That person needs a release form (they are really simple) giving them permission to use that photo of you for the form intended.
Thanks brother this makes a lot of sense and no we didn't sign anything unless the photographer came with the angle that he wanted our autograph.

The picture of us is of RedXtreme and myself on the side of a Chiefs fan we met in Hawaii wearing a DT jersey. It is the exact same photo that was in Maxim magazine, some here posted the picture when it first came out in Maxim in September, this photo is huge though in the Star.

I know but they are ripping off the "superfans" image for their gain.... They should be forced to buck up. Something reasonable using your Chiefs celeb status...

btw you looked good on TV yesterday. looked like a great day to be at Arrowhead. Despite the outcome.

I agree brother, I always let people, charity organizations, media outlets, or anyone that asks use any picture of me without ever asking for compensation. The key is people always ask or are gaining nothing finacially. Charity events gain finacially but they always ask and I have never charged a charity a penny for any of my services.

Thanks for the compliment brother, it was a perfect day at Arrowhead for November, it was a little cold at 6am though with the wind but it turned out to be a perfect day!!

This exact same thing has happened to me. A few years back I was giving a class on Boar semen collection techniques and within the group of students was one of them taking video. Well, One day when I was looking through Boar Stud Magazine I saw myself on a full page ad. It showed me with a Boar mounted and I had his ying yang out and was doing my thing. And under the picture the caption said:

"Don't be this guy , get help Now!"

It was an advertisement for chronic masturbaters anonymous!

I immediately contacted a lawyer. The bottom line was they didn't have permission to use me in the ad. I never signed anything. AND I sued them for slander and defamation.

If the eyes are blacked out or faces blurred or some attempt is made to protect your identity you will have a much tougher time making a case for compensation. JMO

Be a man not a pussy. I bet one of the reasons you dress up like a clown is for the attention. If you've ever been shown on TV before I bet you pointed it out to your friends and thought it was cool, but I bet you didn't call up the networks and sue them. Why not? Because that would be f'in stupid. Same deal here. Do you really think it would make a difference whether they used your picture or some other picture? Your type of attitude is exactly what's wrong with today's society. You can't take a piss without a bunch of dorks wanting to call their lawyers and sue you. You're supposed to be a football fan. Act like one.

The one in the star doesn't have anything like this maxim photo to hide our
idenity, it actually makes it easier by making us so big.
