what to do about someone using your material with out permission

I did another bar mitzvah, here we are in france, we trust no one will do anything silly, for a second time again someone in the family of the bar mitzvah boy says the family owns the videos and photos i provided of the bar mitzvah, i agree its their family, but what i do not agree about is that they want to promote their own photo video business USING a video i made, sounds like fraud, and they do not plan on mentioning me or my company of course.

So i wrote them an email reminding them that i agreed to provide these videos and images for the family, non commercial, just friends and family pass around their DVDS, if they put it on the net, add their own names for the production etc what am i supposed to do now, contact a lawyer, start a argument with a family, I think it is plagiarism  for  anyone to take another person's work and pretend it was them who did it.
