View Full Version : Website Usage of a photo

I have had a request from a company for them to use one of my photos (that I have hosted on flickr) on their website. The photo isn't anything too fancy, in fact it is just a photo of a ship.

I'm quite happy for them to use the photo but I obviously don't want to lose the copyright etc.

Is there any protocol for doing this or has anyone had any similar experience?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Just ask them to credit you, then someone else can't purloin it and claim that they didn't know whose it was. Nice of them to ask in this day and age! You always retain copyright unless you specifically sign it over as aprt of a contract.
