Before I call a lawyer, I wanted to see if anyone knows anything about the following issue. I arranged a photo shoot of my group a while back at an arts school. The stills we got of the band on a professional stage were great. They made our website look professional. A member of our group left the band, and insisted that I take down all pictures of him from my website and all our social media-- all of our group shots, all of the pictures from the shoot we did -- everything. I did it not want to cause a fight or have legal problems. So here I am, promoting a quartet, and I can only show three musicians on all our media. This former member of the group also had youtube videos posted of the band that he made while in it. I made copies of these so I would have them in case he left the band. After he left the band, he insisted that I take down all the videos of the group that I had posted after he left the band. Not wanting a fight or legal hassle, I did it. Recently, I found out that he has renamed the videos of my group that he made me take down (with myself and my existing drummer in it) with his new band's name, and is likely using the videos to promote his new group. One of the members of his group plays in my group too, so it kind of looks like his new band anway. And he's playing a lot of the same repertoire with his new band, so the videos reflect his current sound. But I was never in the new band he is promoting with my group's performance and video (all covers). I am planning to replace all the videos and pictures with the existing musicians in my band, but I'm finding it's going to be a lot of work to make the musicians come out again for shoots, etcetera. My website isn't the same any longer either, as the history is gone. So, I have these questions. 1. Does he have a case in insisting I take down all his pictures from my website with him in it, after I left the band? If you take a picture of someone, and don't get their permission to use it forever, can they legally force you take it down from the web? 2. Can I use the videos of my group, that he recorded, with him in it? 3. Does he have any legal rights because he recorded the video? Perhaps someone has run into this. I believe it's federal law but I'm not sure. I will probably call a lawyer but wondered if anyone else has been asked to sign documents when they were part of pictures or videos, or were able to force others to take down pictures and videos after they left a band.
