$130 for a picture that I don't own...

I was just offered $130 from a German postcard maker for this picture that I posted on Flickr a long time ago (click for better view):

The tragic thing is that that picture was sent to me in an e-mail a long time ago. It was just one of those e-mails that people forward on and on and on that usually does more harm than good. I thought the picture looked neat and posted it on Flickr. Evidently it has gotten a lot of attention. It has a bunch of comments too.

Unfortunately, I do not own the rights to the photo. I have no idea where it came from. I responded saying as much.

Isn't the Internet/Web 2.0 grand?
