If someone infringes your copyright you are entitled to damages

Damages, for the purposes of Copyright infringement are remedial therefore they seek to put the parties into the position that they would have been in had the infringement not occurred

Therefore, if you are a photographer and you sell each picture for 50 and if a person takes 20 photographs from your website without permission, you are owed 1,000 in damages

You may also be able to recover your legal fees (depending on the size of the claim).
