Yes - I know this strange(janus headed) feeling - that your stuff is used
for "teaching" at universities or in articles/papers or in conferences ---
while you "get nothing" but "the honour" (well I got one time an invitation
- too) and you are "not asked" for permission/or simply informed or "asked
for our opinion.
Artist seem to live in/on the clouds ........ eating love and creativity
(never become "fat" - haha - which would be bad for art).

Hmmmmm - 
For one page the author gets appr. 15â/15US$ here,
a web designer gets some hundred $ (for the concept/the idea even more than
for "reproductive" work).

Sometimes I think that the society(ies) do not take care of their artists
(maybe we are really un_important - but well_seen guests - in the play)
are getting pennies like the clowns ;)

In my sight art should be free ........
there have to be/been developped systems which "take care" of the artists.
(when someone wants culture;)
