Submission + - 14-yr-old girl's self portrait stolen for porn DVD

titaniumdoughnut writes: "14 year old girl's self portrait stolen from Flickr and used as cover for porn DVD "Body Magic." TVX Films refuses to acknowledge infringement, claiming to have purchased the image from an unknown stock company and business partner of 25 years, and later blames girl (now 17) for putting her photo on Flickr in the first place. U.S. lawyers requesting £50,000 to take up case.

From TVX Films agent: "I'M SURE BY THE END OF THE MONTH YOUR FACE WILL BE HISTORY ... WE HAVE FURTHER CHECKED OUT YOUR NAME AND ITS NOT LIKE IT'S A HOUSE WHOLE NAME. ACTUALLY, REMOVING YOUR IMAGE WILL HELP IMPROVE THE SELL OF THE DVD..... SO FAR IT BOMBED ... AS FOR COMPSENSATION;YOUR SILLY!"

The DVD continues to be sold and marketed with the photo in question attached. DVD info claims that all models featured are over 18."
