My photo was stolen ???

kimerajam Dec 27, 2012  Student Photographer
Hello, I'm a photographer
and I saw my photo in a book which was published:

<img src="[link]"/>
<img src="[link]"/>
<img src="[link]"/>

My photo here :[link]

And I've never given consent to this image to be used as novel cover and for commercial ,online promotional purposes for this book.Did they have the right to use it after buying my print at DA?? . So what should I do in this case.

Some info:
+Author: Shannon Delany
+Name of the novel:13 Değişim Başlıyor (turkish version)
13 to life (english version)
+Publisher: marti yayinlari ([link])
BTW: Turkey is a party to the Berne Convention

Thank you so much for all your support.

They don't answer .I'm doing the procedures to transfer the relevant documents and evidences for my lawyer in Germany. I will update the results, after the lawsuit end :). & Thanks for your support! :)
If the only place you know to reach out about this is a cheezy website forum, then I'm affraid you will never see a dime for royalties.
You would honestly need a really good lawyer and substantial proof that you created the image, to be taken to the courts after you sue the publisher. But we here can do nothing, not a thing :shrug:
