Hey Guys,

I just got the following email from a company and to be honest it sounds a little bit shady. Have any of you had dealings with them or know what the deal is?


Dear Matthew,

I have a considerable aviation archive, is it possible to put the picture from the Bell 222 Helicopter (OY-HIG) into my helicopter picture archive. You still have the copyrights, when we use it, mainly in the internet, we will mark it with the note: “archive Robert Kuehni”. This way it’s easier to protect your copyright, when we publish your picture in the net.
If we use your picture in a print magazine or in a book we will inform you in advance and we will reimburse you within the normal, common rates.

Thank you in advance.

With my best regards

Captain Robert Kühni

I view this as being a bit of a scam. Person has a photo library that is used by web/print/media outlets. His archive library gets the credit when a photo is used. You get a small fee for effectively handing over all publishing rights to them to do with as they will.

If someone wants to use a photo like this, they should pay big bucks to buy the image rights from you to allow them use it in the way their email describes.

Ha, that's funny. I got that same exact email even though I don't even have a picture of that of that chopper. That tells you a lot.

I'd ask why on earth he specifically wants this shot of OY-HIG in his archive.
I suspect he already has a good customer for it and wants to fob you off with a few pennies.
