Another topic on images being used with no permission / payment....

Hello everyone,
I have just discovered that a French fashion website is using an image of
mine to illustrate a pair of shoes.
I have contacted them and asked for either payment for use of the image
or for them to remove it from their website.

Should the unthinkable happen and they agree to pay for it rather
than take it down, has anyone got any idea what I should expect to get ?

It's this one ( sorry to the mods* in advance for the external link ):-
Converse


Cheers
Nik LG


*quite an ironic turn of phrase given the photo content Smile

250 one off use, check flikr's terms and make sure by uploading to them that you've not got into a RF agreement??

For some reason it's one of the most viewed pics on my Flickr page, so I followed a link that
was used to view it ( just a Google image search ) and noticed it came up twice...

Cool. Seems reasonable Smile Thanks.
I don't subscribe to Flickr's Creative Commons thing, I have opted out so all my images are ( should be ) copyrighted to me...
