The article examines the practice of some commercial image libraries of asserting an unqualified right to payment for any use of images held in their collections. Assessing the legitimacy of these demands for payment requires exploration of the interplay between the law of copyright, contract and statutory fraud. A better reconciliation of the interests of commercial image libraries and the users of images is recommended.
