Is this Illegal

My friend just emailed me this link http://daimotorsports.com/Merchant2/...gory_Code=001. They have my car advertising for the zeemax widebody kit and my plate is clearly shown. Also no one asked me if they can use my car for advertising. Is this illegal??

I'm sure its nothing a "polite" letter won't clear up. Send them a nice letter asking them to either remove the pictures of your car, becuase they posted them on a commercial site without permission. Maybe after they say sorry, you can say, "just mask off the license plate" and be proud your car is on a commercial site...

Some1 from Ottawa sued Canadian Tire because they used his cars pictures in the banners they had in the store without his permission, and he won...

Yeah, I'd do something about it, the licence plate part is what'd bother me the most though.

If they took the photos, it is legal, if those pictures do not belong them, it is illegal.
Just email them and ask to remove the photos.
