"we're effectively giving up rights to residual payments."
I do not agree with that statement. I do not understand the "residual payments" thing.
Copyright is copyright. Computerized date stamps and user upload logs tend to show ownership very well. Not to mention, if you want to try and make something out of a cut down 640/480 or less, be my guest.
Of course website traffic is key to revenue stream, which belongs to the owner of the website. Although,.. much traffic to surf websites can be shown to be a cause of picture posts. So yes,.. maybe we should all have our own websites. But that does tend to be very time intensive.......
Thanks for the feedback everyone.
As far as the picture I spoke of is concerned, I thought it was strange that they never asked for the name of the surfer in the picture or who to give credit for the picture to. I agree with you Joel. I do not feel as if the money is that big of a deal, when I know how many good/better Pictures/Photogs are out and about. It really should not be this hard to make something happen, but no one seems to want to state even basic specifics on the matter. If they seem to not want to know the name of the surfer or the person who took the picture, how cool is that?

That's a tough call, but I would try to get some money for it first.
Cameras and editing software is not cheap and it requires quite a bit of time to take and edit photos. You would think that editorial staff for the popular mags would be understanding and try to look out for you. Too bad that's rarely the case as they get thousands of pictures to choose from.
If they aren't willing to pay you for the picture I would still try and have it published for free. I agree with Joel.
I'd love to see the photo! Watermark away!

What would you do if someone asked you to give them a picture you had taken, to be published in a Surfing Mag,... but just wants you send them that picture without any questioned asked? Is that smart, or should I really not care......?
