my grandma as a nazi wife (?!)

One of the "risks" of uploading photos to Flickr is that people might use your photos without permission. In this case, I was up late last night eating a small meal and flipped to the Military Channel, which was showing "Commanders at War." The episode dealt with the German siege of Stalingrad, and they dramatized the German commander at his desk, with a picture of his "wife" always nearby. I almost spat my food out when seeing the picture they used. "Muh Grandma!" At first it seemed cool, in a weird "hey that’s my grandma on TV!" kinda way, but I’m unsure how my Grandma would have felt about it. My mom was upset when I told/showed her, and so was my uncle, since the photo was used to depict my Grandma as a Nazi. Not to mention they were using it without permission! Very uncool. So I’m thinking of trying to contact the production company that made the show, but I’m not sure how. What’s your feelings about it?
I have all of my vintage family photos set as Creative Commons, so that people can use in creative ways for whatever purposes they want, as long as it’s "noncommercial." This case, however, seems clearly commercial.
What’s weird is that they’d choose this photo. Sure, it’s from the mid 1930s, so they got the time period right, but if you look closely at the picture of my Grandma on the left, it’s a photobooth picture with a backdrop of saguaros and palm trees! You can’t really see that in the show’s version, but still…? Strange.
My Grandma’s name was Mayna Gilmer. She died in November of 2007 at the age of 93.
Update: Read a comment further down by me to see how this was resolved. 🙂
