Dear Sir/Madam,

One of my friend recently came to know that one of the photographer in India have downloaded some of his images and included it in pdf as his wedding photography portfolio. He is forwarding this all his clients. From one of my friend's old client he came to know about this incident. I want to know that in this particular case what type of legal steps my friend can take against that photographer and at the same time what sort of  monetary compensation he can seek from him. My friend has written contract with all of his clients for explicit use of his work, so in that whether he can get any additional benefit for this particular case. And what should be maximum punishment that guilty person can get as per copyright, criminal and cyber law in India

Regards,
Sumit Mukherjee

 has your friend copyrighted his photographs.

if yes all he has to do is lodge an FIR.

If not than send a legal notice to the infringer, and than institute a suit, both civil and criminal.

now be sure that in case you have not copyrighted that you can prove that this photos belongs to you
