: I live in UK and had a photo taken in Greece by another UK resident. The photo has been used on his commercial website without my permission. The photo could be considered 'compromising' Where do I stand? Are there any copyright laws that come into effect? Or any other UK laws that I might have recourse to? If he is to use my photo for commercial gain, can I not expect some recompense?

In the US the law does not allow commercial use of casual photographs. If they are news that is another thing. They can be used for that purpose.
