Got to hand it to you JJ, that was a good catch.

 

In this case, it is evidence of evidence – what is called “parole evidence”.  Legally speaking, it may or may not be admissable in court as proof, it depends on the state.  However, as JJ said, albeit less politely, I think in this case it is more than sufficient to tell the fauxtog to sit on it and spin – you paid for the photos, including the copyright – they are yours to do with as you please.  If she wants to get a lawyer – see you in court.  99 times out of a hundred, the whole lawyer thing is either a bluff, or comes to nothing when the lawyer tells them they don’t have a case.
