lawfully he does not owe you a dime. you posted your image of your truck online, he google searched and found it. then decided to use it. feel glad that he liked it, but remember anything, and i mean anything you post on line is public. you can always put a photostamp on your images to prevent it from happening again.

welcome to the club, it happens once you post a pic on the internet it's free for anyone to use unless you posted some sort of copyright. That said....

i dont get it, if that is your pic then why is his so much more clearer? the necklace is more visable, the sitckers arent, the tire tread is more visable, the concrete is not as dark, no sunshine reflection on yours. Why would someone photshop and do all the work to change even those minor things...?

Okay children time for a quick legal lesson. His photograph is copyrighted as any work of art is automatically copyrighted during its creation:

Quote:
When is my work protected?
Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device.

Source: http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-general.html
Additionally, due to the modifications and uniqueness of his vehicle it can be argued that this also is violating his Right of Publicity. Publicity is essentially the opposite of privacy, which means a person is entitled to control their privacy as they are their publicity.

An example would be...and lets go over the top for points sake....a woman who is abused goes into hiding or moves away etc. has a small social network account with close friends one of which uses her photo for a commercial project, now she is exposed to the world so "right of publicity" gives her a legal utility to stop such a thing.

Thus, it can be argued that the vehicle is so personalized that it is, in itself, a product of the person and protected under these rights.

You're confusing public domain with publicly accessible.

thats really not that hard of stuff to do. if you know how to use photo shop you can do all that in just a few minutes. and they would remove things such as the parking passes because theyre ugly (not just yours but in general) the frf sticker would be removed because it makes it to easy to identify the truck (and they might not like it there personally idk) license plate, duh. they would leave the necklace because lots of people leave them on the mirrors no big deal, i would have guessed them to remove it for the same as the frf sticker because it makes it easier to identify the truck. saturation, contrast, and lighting levels can all be adjusted to make the ground look brighter, grass greener, etc.. as for the sun spot it could have been simply added to make the photo look like it was taken on a sunny day (which is what it looked like they were going for) it also could just be there to distract your eye from or cover any blemishes that could have happened when they were editing the photo.

/rant

----------

you should call them and tell them that they can use your truck if they send you a free insert. just a suggestion.

Same truck: maybe (probably)
Same picture: Not by a long shot. (different time of day, different location in aspect to the brick work on the house across the street, ((unless he photoshopped and moved the house over)), sun reflections are different)
At any rate, it IS a nice looking truck. Now, spend a few thousand dollars and make him pay you a few hundred. Haha.

For those who don't think it chopped, here's what I did in 5min in photoshop with the pic posted above, so anything is possible but I would assume it's photoshoped!



EDIT: I know the bumper looks like shit but it was a quickie! lol
