Dear Michael,

I work for EDS and we are looking at producing a one off mousemat to give to a small team of users who use EDS' Mission Planning Software. We have found your picture on Airliners.net and would like know how much you would charge to use this picture and grant a copyright licence? Be great to hear from you.

Any ideas?

I've lost a few customers before, so what I like to do know is Suggest a price ($50+, $100+, $200+ $500+) but say that its open. Instead of giving a price and never hearing back from them ever again.

just my 2cents

I'd ask how many mousemats are being produced and work out a reasonable price from that. I wouldn't grant them a copyright license though, just allow them to use it.

Just ask a couple of questions like the company name, contact person, phone number
resolution needed or provided max resolution, how many copies they want to produce etc....

you get the idea. The more specific your questions are the more specific will be their answers, at least most times.
