Was this a pic you took or they took? On something like cardomain they can take all your pictures and do anything with them they want. If you were entered into a competition at the car show did you have to sign anything?

You can't do much if you put your car pic on the Internet, its a public forum and everyone can take it and use it. You can only protect yourself if you copyright the material and actually state that on your website, or like one of the guys said, put a logo in the background. You can only take it as flattery and move on.

You want to sue?

I totalled my car, the airbags didn't go off, and I didn't sue.
