    Dear Ms. Daniella Zalcman,
    I am working on a book and would like to request permission to use this photo of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad @ Columbia University on the front cover. Would you consider waiving the copyrights and letting me know how you would like me to credit the photo to you? Looking forward to your reply.
  • Daniella Zalcman 7y

    Yes, feel free -- as long as you include a credit.
  • Karim M 7y

    I wouldn't do that Daniella. This dude is going to be making a profit on his book if published, it's only fair that you make a fair share of those profits for your effort in taking the photo.

    Daniella, i concur... i was waiting to see what your answer would be...

    bookcover art is a paying gig. don't sell yourself short... if your image helps sell the book, then, well...

    also, wouldn't you like to read at least some outlines before attaching yourself to his project?
  • Rippie: Contra Censura! 7y

    although, i see you've released it to Wiki, so he can use it anyhow. he didn't even have to ask, but he did, so... that's that.
  • Daniella Zalcman 7y

    Yeah, it's pretty much in the public domain now, but I really appreciate you guys looking out for me....

    as Red Green (famously) said: "We're all in this together."

    the CBC's finest moment, i'm sorry to say...

    This is a nice photo, it would be great to see more of this quality on Flickr. Also, don't worry about "selling yourself short" by releasing this under the Creative Commons Attribution license -- some might not have figured it out yet, but there are more important things that can be done with a photo than "sharing the profits."

    It is a great photo. I'm blogging it.

    Every one should know this man is representing an SATANİST underground group in İran.They show similarity in purposes to the EVANGELİSTS but these are straİghtly after destrying the hole world.

    Great photo, I agree. And just like Steve LeVine, I have blogged it. Iran's soccer team is struggling and may not qualify for the World Cup because one of its key players has been suspended. Ahmadinejad intervened and had the suspension lifted. I speculate that it happened because the team provides a powerful diversion for the Iranian public, and Mr. A. needs the diversion, especially as the Iranian economy continues to tank.

    Anyhow, the post can be found here:

    Thanks for your reply to my request posted 9 months ago. I didn't think it would generate so much discussion.
    Actually, I'm still working on the book on world history, but I thought of using this photo as the front cover for a second book which I had already completed and self-published. It's a book on scam-baiting entitled "Revenge of the Piqued Prankster: The Storytellers", and you can view part of it at
    I told some internet scammers that I was President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Israeli temporary wife who jilted him, leading to his hatred for the state of Israel. I didn't think anyone would believe me, but, guess what? Some of the scammers really did, and I had a very interesting exchange of emails with them.
    The book isn't meant to insult either President Ahmadinejad or the Israelis, as anyone reading it would know straight away that it was a scam-baiting strategy. But, I'm not sure if you would have any objections to my using your photo, which is why I didn't use the photo.
    Although you've released the photo under the Creative Commons Agreement, I feel that it's only decent to ask your permission to use the photo for any purpose. In addition, I am prepared to offer you a percentage of the net profits (after deducting all costs), as I can see you are a very talented photographer, and you've certainly earned my respect.
    Right now, however, I have to concentrate on selling the book -- it hasn't sold a copy yet, and if I have to re-submit the front cover, I have to pay the publisher additional cost. It would be easier if I could find a good trade publisher to take a look at it.

    Could i have permission to use this image on a new not-for-profit site?

    I will of course credit you as above (and link your Flickr page if you would like that).

    I'd like to use the Ahmadinejad 2 image on my site. I'll give you credit. Would that be OK?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you for your time.

    It looks like someone is selling a wrist watch on ebay with your photo on it:
