Does photography and reproduction of a publicly displayed sign fall under fair use?

Some time back a friend took this photo
of me next to a sign. The business owner is now claiming that I'm violating copyright.
Being that the sign is on public display, and that I'm not reproducing the image for profit, I believe my photo falls under fair use. I'd like more authoritative advice before caving into the demands of a palm reader
