You can stop the use of your image at a website for three reasons: invasion of privacy, violation of right of publicity or defamation.
If an internet website is using your image without your permission, you may want to contact an attorney about a possible lawsuit if the use of your image qualifies as an invasion of privacy, a violation of your right of publicity, or defamation. Since these areas are often complicated, the advice of an intellectual property attorney could be beneficial in determining the extent to which your rights have been violated and what legal options you have.
