As a Malaysian, I can tell you the IP infringement is rampant and largely ignored here. Walk down the street, pick up a magazine, watch the TV, and you're surrounded by it. I work in media and have been instructed to use unauthorized content on several occasions. No action is taken unless you can afford a hotshot lawyer and drum up a big public case. Which I hope you do.

Not that you'll ever get the govt or Post office responsible. At best, the blame will go to some lowly student contractor who got paid $10/hour to do the job. I know this sounds bad, but just giving you a heads up. I personally hope you get your fair dues.

Sorry it happened but you would have to spend a huge sum of money trying to defend your case.

I also agree with the fact that what ever is posted on the internet will be used by someone else at some point in time.

Fair use is a big deal in journalism. Not sure how it might apply to images.
