Another kind of copyright issue

PdnOnline reports on the struggle of photographer Kelly Fajack. Mr. Fajack did pro bono photography work for a non-profit in Burundi. An engraver used a photo from Mr. Fajack's web site as the basis for a vingette on the Burundi 10,000 franc note.

Mr. Fajack wishes to sue the engraving company but has not been able to find out who does the engraving for Burundian currency.
