They contacted me also last week and I visited their site to find my sunset shot on there and another shot, without permission. In my reply I gave them a price quote for what they wanted and I made mention that they were already using two of my photos without permission. She replied back saying they would consider my price and that she would notify their webmaster at their sister company to remove my photos. They are still up and I'll be sending an invoice to them soon.

Dear oh dear! It makes me mad. How hard is it to ask someone? Yes, it might cost them, but that is no excuse. What happened to manners and common decency? Have both disappeared in favour of efficiency? It is extremely easy to combine cost reduction with manners and decency. But no. Instead they decide to take full advantage of a potential customer. Bad luck for them: they have lost a potential customer. And all for the price of one photo.
