Also here is one of his recent email replies.
I get paid for what I write, not for the illustrations accompanying them. If I had to get permission for every illustration I used I wouldn't have time to get any illustrations on my articles and would likely not make any money.
So I developed this policy, which usually works. I seek to give credit. When I can find one, I even seek a place where the illustration's being sold, and link to that.
I used to just link to the illustrations, but I was accused then of stealing bandwidth.
No one is going to take a 200 pixel reproduction of a larger piece and call it art. No one is using it as anything but eye candy, and those who like it are going to use links to seek it, and the artist, out.
I don't know how to get this through to you. I didn't steal from you. I didn't rob you. I sought to publicize you. And was called a thief for my troubles.
Now I'd like to get to work helping you, thanks...........
