Ran if you sell an object-lets say a plant, then ownership has transferred 
from you to the person who has paid for it.

Secondly, an image of an object is NOT the same thing as the object. Unless 
its a slogan or logo.

It comes down to fair compensation for use, a good picture takes work and 
time and expense. Just as growing a good Hosta. 
I think most people are happy to share their pictures but feel put off when 
it is assumed that that they can be just taken.

Like Chick said it costs a bit of money to produce a picture for a commercial 
web site and when some one comes along and steals them after you have spent 
$1,000 on the camera and software and all the time it takes to crop the 
picture and to fit it into a web page and then up load it, Its just not right 
for your competition to come along and not have to spend a dime and the time 
to "have" those pictures.

This form of theft is enough to prevent one from going that extra mile to 
produce as good a presentation or produce as you would like-who wants to 
spend a couple hundred hours working on something that some cracker would 
steal in 10 minuets.

Just not right.
