One way of describing being ripped off!.
A musician or say an actor discusing their latest release in a magazine is exposure, not paying contibutors for content, which is what your image is, is simply taking advantage of gullible people who think being published without recompense is a good thing. And contributes further to the degrading of photography as a profession as opposed to a hobby.
