    Are they hotlinking the file? If so, change the file on your clients site to be nameofimage1 or similar. Change your clients site to show this. Now change over nameofimage to be a same sized photo of porn. Something kinky for the lolz.

    Or you could just send them a DCMA notice.

    Or you could send them a notice saying they have not used the image without consent and the fee is xxxx.

    Or finally, if you did it right and you made what they did against the site's Terms and Conditions, then there should be clause with a sizable financial penalty (6 figures). Bargain for 5 figures though mediation.

    "Or finally, if you did it right and you made what they did against the site's Terms and Condition"

    --> FYI .... Terms & Conditions don't mean $hit. In 99.999999% of court cases. It's not a signed agreement so it's not really valid.


    @OP: The answer is simple: Send them a C&D letter informing them that they have 2 days to remove it or they get sued very simple.

    Option 2: DMCA and send a notice to their hosting company and domain registrar. If they don't take it down within 24hrs most web hosts will terminate the users account.


    My Personal Advice: It's not your place to get involved in your clients affairs. No sense in dragging yourself into legal affairs. You should suggest to your client that they speak to an attorney if it bothers them that much.

    I would certainly like to know the court case where the terms and conditions were set aside. What was the case (ie x vs y etc)?
