Note that the date of issue is supposed to be Nov. 13, 2013. Had I not gone public with the photo theft, they'd have released the stamps about a week from now.

So you peaked too early, as they say in the Athletic World, you should have waited
for the stamps to be issued, then sue for the big bucks.

I will say having experience in graphic design this sounds plausible to me. We make up comps and share them with the client with no intention of them being published. all it takes is one idiot client to create a situation like this. Images are not normally licensed until client has approved the desing. though typically we would work with images from stock agencies we knew we could license
