|I had some people approach me last year, really badly wanted to use a pic of mine for their business. Essentially they tried to bully me into giving them the rights to the pic - to my own intellectual property...lol
I very nicely told them to go get stuffed, that if they wanted to outright own the rights to the pic, free and clear it would cost them a few $k. (Think I quoted them $5k) However, if they simply wanted to pay me a modest royalty for the rights to use the pic for a limited amount of time and usage, they could, for a few hundred. Not surprisingly they opted for the latter :-)
So as I doubt Tris and co are hurting for cash, hope you get that nice healthy sum! Fingers crossed for you!
