    by Bobsphotography | 22nd of April, 2010

    I was just thinking how DT is controling the usage of a picture. If for instance a picture is bought by subscription as royalty free, but the buyer makes 50.000 creeting cards with it, who is checking that? If he sells these cards outside the Netherlands, where I live, I... More
