Dear Photographer: Is Using Images for Marketing Purposes Standard for an Editorial Contract?

I’ve been shooting for a trade magazine in New York for a few years and have a good relationship with the photo editor. My problem is that the company has just changed their contract which now states that they can use my images for marketing purposes without any additional pay or credit. I don’t have many other editorial clients, so I’m wondering if this clause is standard in editorial contracts or if I should try and push back.—Anonymous
