TPB Read The Pirate Bays Press Release Announcing the Police Report They Filed Today

The guys behind The Pirate Bay—the world’s largest file-sharing site and an important part of the debate regarding copyright law, piracy, and the Internet—have announced that they filed a police report today. The issue stems from an anti-piracy organization from Finland who built a parody website using pieces of The Pirate Bay’s website. Last week TPB revealed that they filed a lawsuit, and today they take things one step further and push for legal action to be taken.

While it may seem unlikely that The Pirate Bay would be fighting for enforcement of copyright law, they have insisted—even when taken to court and threatened with prison time—that their site is not any more at fault than the Internet itself, and that they have not broken copyright law, that they have only created a network where copyright infringement happens. It’s a complicated issue and much of the law surrounding it is influenced by the people who stand to lose the most money, meaning that it’s Hollywood and the entertainment industry who have pursued legal action against The Pirate Bay for years.

Most design contracts the copyright usually goes to the person who you are doing the desiging for, meaning your past employer re...ontract that you signed when you started working for him in terms of rights?
Also, you blatently threatened his business, which in general is not a good idea to do. Small claims court is the proper thing to do as well as a proper letter (not a verbal threat) letting him know that the website needs to be taken down according to such and such law until you are paid for your services, etc....

You have options. You mentioned

A contract, so the first thing you do is contact the person that you dealt with for the commission, point out what your contract was for, and the fact that you are aware the school is now using your copyrighted image.
Be nice, be friendly. Tell them that they are in violation of your copyrights, and you'd be happy to work out a financial arrangement that is beneficial to you so they can c...s the site for Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts
If you're feeling charitable, you can tell them you are going to now donate all the proceeds from future sales to some charity. Or keep the money.
The minute they give you a hard time, I would let them know that you are going to be contacting the local press on this issue. Because no matter what they say, they are taking advantage of you.
