Just a quick question....I had been asked via email by someone I don't know - an aspiring artist in another country - whether she could use some of my nature photos on my gallery as reference for her artwork. She claims that she will use the pics as a reference only and not "copy" the entire image wholesale for her artwork. However, the thing is that not only will she be putting the finished works on her own gallery (but she promised she will linkback and credit to me), but she also intends to sell some of the prints at her local market.
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
I'm a bit hesitant on this because the artwork prints based on my photos could eventually be used for her own commercial gain....so my probably answer is "no".
Appreciate your views and comments on this. Thanks!
