WIth or without a CC license, what the publication did was wrong, and I
would start with the advice given here. It has happened to photographer
friends of mine before, and usually a polite phone call to the staff
informing them that they published a photograph of yours without
permission, and that it is a problem, is enough.
Since they already ran the photo w/o permission, most publications will
send you a check for the standard freelance photography rate. In a
couple cases among people I know, that usually amounted to an apology
from the editor and a check for $150-500.
