This is pretty interesting, I think. Would be curious to know the terms of the original shoot, if they paid at that point.

I'm guessing the original terms didn't include a buyout, otherwise they wouldn't bother to ask the photographer's permission to use the shots.

"Shirley Manson is a Scottish singer, songwriter, actress, and musician who has a net worth of $8 million."

She can afford to pay for photo use, instead of asking for people to work for credits. However if she's really into this trade kind of deal, I'd like to invite her to come sing a few songs with my band, for free, and we'll be sure to feature her name and thank her profusely for the free appearance.

We'd also expect to retain all rights and income, to future sales of recordings we make at the live performance...

only a fool would trust these rich rockstars.

i lost count of their many "no profit" PR stunts where they beg for money in order to save the world ... or like U2/Bono making billions with the top NGOs operating in the third world.

there's nothing more corrupt than the NGO industry and no-profit in general, especially if backed by rockstars who bring their faces as testimonials.
