I would think that the picture may have been used as pulicity photos for Day's which means they own the rights to them. Thus MA can't make them not use them it's probably in a standard contract. I remember them using the original Mickey's photo for Maggie and doubt they paid the actor to use it.

This reminds me of when Alice used to gaze at Tom's photo on the mantle. (Choosing not to remember the floating head Reilly era). She would gaze at it fondly, talk to him, ask him for advice. There was no question that she had placed the photo there and took comfort from its presence. Jennifer has not been shown to do any of that. In fact, IIRC, there was a scene where she basically put away his personal things and said her goodbyes.
If I had to guess, I would say Abigail is the one who placed Jack's photo on the mantle, and Jennifer is allowing it to stay there for her daughter's sake -- and perhaps as a public show of obligatory mourning that she can't bring herself to actually express in any other way.
I agree, but also on a more mundane note, Matt must be allowing them to do this as he's no longer under contract.
On an equally mundane note, can they use his picure as part of his episode guarantee? He was in so few episodes from February to August.
