When someone says" "We would like to purchase the right to exclusively use your _______ photos in our TV news programs."

Does this mean they want to own the copyright outright, or just be able to use the photo for a purpose for X amount of time? From the looks of it, the price they were willing to give seemed a bit low for 3 photos. Any standard fee per photos for a TV program?

Much thanks!

It means you can't sell them to anyone else. You want to establish for how long time since the copyright remains yours and you could sell them after the exclusivity expires.

Should bring in some nice money.

About the cost:
According to my 2004 list: roughly $186 per showing. That is if they show it for half a sec in the intro of the program and then again 5 seconds during the show, that is 2 showings and $186 x2.
So they probably want to be able to show it as they please.

edit: that is for a news program or such.
TV commercials are a higher cost, but per day.

Indeed - $60 for an undetermined "exclusive" period, and wanting the rights to print the photos as well during such time seemed like a slap in the face.

I was thinking of $500 flat ? And ideas? I received the same request - and would like to do it in a way both Justin and I get the business  Smile

I would choose the biggest font that your email system allows and type this:

"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA."

Fill up about 8 page lengths of that. Then send a second email with a few more and say "Sorry, I couldn't fit all the laughs into one email. I thought you wanted all the rights to all of those photos of mine for a shitty price."

Tempting Phil... very tempting. I did initially send an e-mail asking if he was joking, and told him to make me an offer that was worth my time, and ultimately his too.

He then sends me an e-mail confirming he was indeed not joking (gotta love the language barrier). I made a counter-offer which is much more reasonable, and as expected - haven't heard a reply.
