If you applied for permission to use a photo and were denied.....why would you then paint that photo? If you did, you would have knowingly infringed on their copyright and have to deal with the consequences. Seems a nobrainer to me.

If you are unable to get their permission for any reason...DON'T USE IT.
No infringement, no problem.

Remember Napster and then Napsters ghost.  As long as you have no need for legitimacy then feel free to use piracy.  If you want to build a professional reputation you must pay for intellectual property.

Batman, regarding PMP's copyright. They have taken the CC wording and added their own twist on it by adding that the paintings from their photos can be sold.

Photographers often do this (adapt the standard copyright), that is why it is so important to read each artists own copyright "twist" before using a photo
