I will only license the images to a business or individual whose work is in the image. If you see someone posting your photos as their work, chances are they have obtained the photos illegally, and you’ll need to reconcile that with them.

In these circumstances liability is limited to the return of fees paid for the service or part thereof according to the percentage of images supplied.
