Greek man gets 2 million kronor in damages for being on "Turkish Yoghurt"

Adland: 

The greek man Minas Karatzoglis who found that his image was on the "Turkish Yoghurt" packaging in Sweden and promptly filed suit for 50 million kronor has agreed to a conciliation. Lindahls Mejeri will pay him 2 million Swedish kronor, to avoid a process in Greece.

Anders Lindahl, the MD of Lindahls Mejeri, where the Turkish Yogurt is their bestseller, says to aftonbladet;

We believe that we've done the right thing the whole way through. We bought the image from a stock image company, and paid for it. The money that we're giving to Minas Karatzoglis now we will demand back from the stock image company.

A lesson to learn from this is, stock image photos are not cheap.
