Whilst browsing through flightsim.com, I found this, inside a folder being distributed as freeware. Anybody who downloads this particular aircraft is also recieving this:

As one of the files included in the package.

At least he credited it in the other file, as it seems he also used an a.net photo on the model. Maybe he just liked the photo and wanted to include it?

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

I had something similar happen...I noticed one of my photos of a sideon BA320 (very boring/normal) suddenly got a whole bunch of hits within a very short time. I decided to search google for it, and I discovered my photo was used by some FS plane designer for making his model. I didn't bother taking it any further, or looking for credit or not. When they distribute it for free, why not let them have it for free?  Smile


I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

One of my photos of an AC BAE-146 is also being used on a download page for a FS version of the Aircraft. He asked for permission though, but no problem with me, he even gave me credit. Like LHSebi said When they distribute it for free, why not let them have it for free?

Well here's my thing with this kind of distribution. I would gladly let any FS designer use one of my photos, but not in the manner of which is being presented here, because here they are actually distributing the picture to anybody who downloads the file, and because so many people are getting this file, it could very well fall into the wrong hands.

Now if they wanted to post my picture as an example but not distribute it in the file package, I would have no problems with it. Really if you expect to make money that way, find another business.
