Are they honest

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 am not going to find out.

Very true.
There is no way to monitor this, but on the other hand some one who pays in the first place, will not risk loosing their business for a few dollars.

It´s not possible to have control over that. We have to live with it and hope that people don´t abuse the rights.

It's a relevant and valid question and agree with Mani33 when he says that if someone is buying an image for legal use he/she won't risk his business for a couple of dollars!

Good question!
No DT can't control that use as it's impossible the way it is! BUT if someone is buying an image for legal use he/she won't risk his business for a couple of dollars! Professional work doesn't give a chance to anything like an image or a design to ruin up their business or reputation!
So if this happens they are rarely cases!
By the way I learned some time ago that using images for commercial greeting cards is not allowed in the terms of use! Simply because greeting cards are selling for the image! While in a book you don't buy a book because of an image on the cover or what so ever!

What applies on DT is applying on the other agencies as well!
Hope that helped some! Cheers :)
