    they sent me this
    Do you think its a good idea to give them my photo? I don't really mind, even if it's for free, maybe as long as I get a copy of the guide if they chose mine :greenpbl:

    BTW this is the photo

    I had them ask for one of my images too. It's a decent deal, since the guide is free, you get credit, and the terms state quite clearly they can't make money off of the guide by selling it, so if they do then they can't use your image, or they have to pay you. They seem on the up-and-up. I just wish I could secure a darn property release so I could actually let them have the photo. BLARG!!! (Sadly, mine is of a very recognizable building.)

    That building is clearly visible while standing on public property. Do you still need a release? What's the logic there?

    Yes. The problem is that the building is recognizable, not that it's visible from public property. Even though one can easily take a photo of it on private property, that doesn't mean that I own the rights to the likeness of their building. For that, I need a property release, and having all necessary releases like that in hand is one of the terms of the Schmap submission...dealy.

    I would have never expected that. Damned shame in your case.

    It's part the nasty and confusing web that is our law, and part that I'd rather be safe than have a lawsuit directed at me.
