I've run into one or two people on OTRS that were reusing the materials in
good faith, but that got a letter from such a photographer that wanted to
see money (and that is just spillover from Germany to the Netherlands).
Examples linked in the discussion include this warning and bill
<http://www.gulli.com/news/19712-abmahnung-wegen-bild-aus-der-wikipedia-2013-01-12>
of
hundreds of euros for a foundation that did not specify the author name or this
website that was asked <https://historischdenken.hypotheses.org/3677> to
pay over a thousand euro. The discussion on the German WIkipedia may
contain more links, and the linked blogs are insightful on how this
behaviour is being perceived. Just google for "abmahnung bild wikipedia" to
find more examples and stories.

Hope that clarifies. German Wikipedians may have better examples.
