Copyright issues

Does anyone know where the responsibility lies in an instance of copyright infringement? I discovered this morning that a regional body has used a picture of mine on a promotional PDF. Are they therefore automatically culpable, or might I need to chase whoever provided them with the image (I've a fair idea, as I signed a single use permission form to let the Arts Council use a couple of pictures last year - it seems they've been a little bit lax...)?

Any help on this much appreciated,

Jonathan

I don't know about the legal aspects, but I would write to the people who published, point out the infringement and send them a suitable invoice for the useage.

How they responded would dictate the next move.
Best regards, John

Yes

Not culpable, if they did it innocently.

But they're still liable to pay.

Thanks for the replies - looks like I may have to do a little bit of chasing & invoicing!
