I've just had an email from a Korean publisher asking to use an illustration of mine in the Korean edition of an American book.  They are suggesting $80 as a re-use fee.  They will be publishing a run of 3000 copies.  I have no idea if $80 is a fair fee, though it seems rather small at first glance.  Does anyone with experience of this have any thoughts?

Thanks!  Enjoy yourselves in Maine...
