2) A few cents for a download is very cheap. There are site that are charging 10 times as much, or maybe even more.
3) You don't HAVE to pay, you can download lower resolution pictures or can contribute.
Hope I cleared that up for you.

"Images", yes indeed they are, images. What would you call them?
I appreciate the quality is high and without gumpf, but you're still making money off copyright material.
You have a niche, granted, but I don't find it terribly respectable.

Anyway it's true we don't own copyrights. But what is really the difference with IMDb or any other movie website? They also make money, but trough advertisements. And, as you can read in the 'about' page, you don't really pay for single images but more for the service we offer. And it's also to prevent everyone from downloading the whole database, which would instantly kill our server/bandwidth.
Also we remove posters as quick as possible when a copyright owner asks us. This has happened a few times for instance when we had a My BlueBerry Nights posters which wasn't released yet. The problem wasn't the moneymaking (as you call it), but just the fact it wasn't released yet.

I'm from an advertising agency looking for movie posters to use in a client's image film. Can you tell me by chance if I am allowed to use the posters of this database for a 'commercial' purpose like this or if I have to pay any licence fee apart from the 'credits'?
Thanks in advance for a quick info!

Instead of asking for 5 EUROS straight away give them an incentive, once they start the addiction sets in.
