Well I was catching a delta flight the other day and happened to flick though the in-flight magazine. Got to p110 and found one of my images, along with several other stock images which I suspect come from either Dreamstime or Shutterstock.

Unfortunately there don't appear to be any photo credit listed for either the photos in question or the agencies used. Does anyone know if any of the agencies actually permit unattributed photo use? My impression was that this wasn't allowed, but I could be wrong. Has anyone encountered this situation before... if so what did you do?

The magazine in question is here... look at p 110:

I'm pretty certain that none of the 7 agencies that I upload to require images to be credited.

I already knew IS and DT require a credit for editorial use, and I have just confirmed that in FT also.  I didn't check the others.  Of course, an image in an advertisement in a magazine does not require that, just images in articles, and I suppose the latter is the case cited by holgs.

Do I have to give credit for the image?
Should you use the image for editorial purposes, giving a credit line is compulsory.

IS: http://www.istockphoto.com/license.php
For greater certainty, the following are Prohibited Uses and you may not:  (...) 13. use the Content for editorial purposes without including the following credit adjacent to the Content: iStockphoto.com/Artists Member Name]

FT: http://www.fotolia.com/Info/Faq#b14
Am I required to add copyright information when I use a photo from Fotolia?
(...) The only time we require copyright information to be added is when the image is being used in conjunction with editorial use such as a newspaper or magazine story.

update: I didn't see that restriction in StockXpert and BigStock. What a shame!
