Default Thoughts on folks profitting from OUR images

As you guys well know, I've been photographing guns for IMFDB for a long time now. Many of my pics are originals which I shot JUST FOR IMFDB. I gave IMFDB (and only this site) free license to use my pics however they wanted. From time to time I catch others using my images for commercial purposes. I recently caught a company selling a poster of rifles and about half the images were MY pics from IMFDB.

He's charging about 12 bucks a poster.

I usually don't care if other people steal our pics for their own personal use, but using it to make money seems wrong.

I wish he would credit IMFDB or at least contribute a portion of his profits to IMFDB (and Bunni) to keep the site going.

Thoughts?
