somebody stole a picture; not sure what to do

EDIT: Oh, and as it is on youtube, make a copyright claim against the video.
Thank you! I guess that's the thing I should do. I feel bad about it though; he seems like a nice guy, and he's not really using it for a huge profit or anything; he's probably oblivious with the fact this is actually copyright infringement. 
The thing that annoys me about it is that I just met that people on the street and I don't have a model release, and all the sudden these people end up in a youtube presentation.
