While doing a photo search I found one of my images at Fotosearch.  http://www.fotosearch.com/sc/CSP094/0947275/  Just wondering who this is and how my image got there and more than anything... do I get paid for this since my name isn't anywhere on the image!!!

Thanks,
Connie

yep, canstock.  Fotosearch bought out Canstock photo.

Seems like a good thing for us.  I got a few fotosearch sales last month - they show up in the canstock sales like usual with a fotosearch title in the 'type' column

They have Hubble Telescope images for sale; I am not sure how legal it is. They don't credit NASA, so I am assuming that the person who sales them doesnt own Hubble Telescope.

Here is the image of Embryonic Stars Emerging from Interstellar "Eggs"

Short version. "If not copyrighted, NASA material may be reproduced and distributed without further permission from NASA. "

If the image contains people, you would need a model release. You can't use their logos. You can't use Nasa materials to endorse a product. There's also something about people claiming copyright to materials that they have copied from Nasa websites.

Just a guess, but it's probably legal to upload these to stock sites as long as the person don't claim they are his or her images.

Don't the sites say, you must be the copyright owner of everything we upload?

Hopefully anyone who is thinking of paying for these will notice and go download them for free from the Nasa site.  ;D
