Pretty cool! And get a good picture of it for your daughter; she'll want it when she gets older.

We went to an all-star cheerleading competition a few years ago and were handed a card with all of the photographer's information in case we wanted to order pics from the event. I didn't even look at it. Another team parent approached me a few minutes later with her card and asked me what I thought about it. Our two daughters were the background for the card, with their photo having been taken at a previous competition.

It was a great pic, so we promptly gathered up a number of additional copies of the card for the girls.

Just be thankful you were not picking your nose or scratching your ass. I'd not worry about it at all and I'd use it to entertain the kids.

1. Without extensive legal knowledge, it would be presumptuous to charge forward with a complaint.
2. In a public event, with little to no expectation of privacy, images are going to capture attenders. The use of such images, as others have noted, may have been permitted under ticket policy.
3. However, I do think within bounds of gracious conversation, you should share your concerns with the venue, promoter, and photographer. Regardless of the legality of their action, which I won't judge myself, the concern you raise is worthy of sharing. You were surprised, you were disappointed, and you were concerned by their acts. They should know.

After seeing it, I'm not worried about it. It's fun, funny and we're having a good time with our 15 milliseconds of fame. Seriously, I'm amazed people recognized us. I'm glad we look sort of normal, but I'm pretty sure I'm saying to my wife in my Cousin Eddie/Randy Quad voice, "Honey, that there's an Rrrrr Veeee." The new commercial was on the Today Show this morning (my wife watches it, no really). It almost makes up for the time I stayed at school to study instead of going to County Stadium with some friends to fill seats for a movie being filmed there: Major League.

Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

My wife and I are trying figure out what to do with the kids today. Then it dawned on me, there's an RV show down in Ft Myers.

I understand what you are feeling. Aboutique 10 yearsenal ago, my kids were in a bus accident. A year later, I had Googled it and found a personal injury in another state using it as a sales pitch. Irritating but unless you have time, just let it go like Elsa say.

As noted, you likely have little or no recourse.

But what could it hurt to ask the advertiser if they might furnish some compensation for the use of your image? Even if they just offer up a gift card to a local restaurant you'd be ahead.

I was in a local micro distillery here in NH a while back. they were filming a segment for a local show. Never noticed it but when the showed the episode, I'm in in.

Is it too late to sue????? Maybe not. They have really good Bourbon.

I remember sometime back when the Google car took a photo of some guy coming out of a porn shop. He was able to get his face blurred. BTW there is a feature in Google maps where you can blur your home on Google maps if you desire. It is a new privacy feature.

A big part of my job is telling clients when something isn't worth fighting over. I understand not liking unwanted publicity, but this is one of those things.

My GF's father was a nursing home resident. He turned up in a training presentation at her employer, the local BCBS. She only discovered it after he died. They removed it without apology. Probably was a HIPAA violation.
