have you took your portfolio from iStock?

No I haven't; I'll still take whatever revenues I can get from the files I've made.

Thanks for the suggestion, Lisa. I've considered dropping exclusivity many times but I find the US tax stuff daunting (I am in Norway), especially if it isn't a long-term investment. I also tried "branching out" into the istock 3D field as a non-exclusive, but they wound't have any of it (I still feel wounded;)

If Norway has a treaty you might not have to pay tax in the US, but only in Norway as a normal Norwegian sole trader.
