Hey all,

I received an email recently regarding a photo that some has used on their site.

The thing is, the email said that they had already used it and they just wanted to know if that was ok and if I could either give them the "ok for go" or the "not ok to go". Has this ever happend to anyone else here??

I thought that it was a bit pushy for someone to do this, to use the photo and get it all setup, and then to ask if its ok to use!

the pic is being used here: http://www.matermultimedia.it/axi/sedi.php

Its only portion of the photo in the top left of the page. What do we think its the best move? Say "yeah go for it" or "no way man, pay me some cash!"?

Had a look at it they didn't use much .
The ball is in your court regarding what you do but if it was me i would ask them to ask first before they use any of your work.
If they think they can get away with doing this with you they will certainly try with others.
Cheers

Is it a flight sim site? Good luck with that..I doubt they will pay you. I would ask for compensation, and remind them that they have already violated your copyright. I would bet from the crop of your image that they took, you would never have found out they were using your picture. Not endorsing their usage, but at least he asked.

Yeah thats exactly right so I should think myself lucky that he actually asked at all!

Yeah I'll do that. I'm not really worried about the photo its the fact that they asked after it had already been used!!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I'll contact them asap.
