Re: No. I grant an expensive license...

Yes, you should be compensated. But in the real world the likelihood of you ever being compensated is extremely slim, especially if the person doing the copying is not in your legal jurisdiction. There have been so many examples of outright theft described here on DPReview and I have yet to hear of one case where the real owner received compensation. At best the publicity resulted in the offending image being taken down from public view, but only on the one offending site that was publicly shamed.
