    the agreement to keep mum on the details is probably to prevent that organisation from looking stupid in the public eye for not knowing to pay up immediately when the breach was made known and wasting money starting a no-hope litigation... the breach in agreement at most was a case of ignorance or oversight which might be understandable and easily resolved through negotiation, whereas the move to litigate shows stupidity and/or possible bloodymindedness with a possible hint of a bully's mentality...

    for the TS, the most that can be said is that it's a breach of courtesy, for not informing the TS that the image will be used before it is used...
    Thanks, that's a well defined explanation.
    That is why I'd mentioned, its a case by case situation.

    Photo credit is considered as a form of acknowledgement. It appears with the published image.
