Have Jordan send them an invoice for use of his photograph. Not too sure about international copyright laws, but I know in the US, they can pay up, or lose a court case.

That's just wrong!!!
Sonny, you should pursue the matter, cause you paid good money for your Airrunner set-up, and they using your pic to advertise their knock-off shizzle.
It's like they're saying "take a look at how good this GS looks on our knock-off shizzle. Why should you spend $XXXX.xx for Airrunner when your car can look like this."
When it's not true.
Gay bastards!
