Romy:
One of my best selling images came up in 37 different URLs when I ran
it through TinEye.com. Russian, German, Swedish?, etc. I am still
looking at them to see if any commercial use was made of them. I
wondered about this one because it's "cute." It seems mostly to have
turned up on humor sites.

I can confirm the same.

Ran a few of my images through Tineye, and one came up in a Russian commercial website. A quick look through showed that they use at least 11 of my photos! All without any credits - even worse, with their site's logo in the corner.

I am still considering my actions. On the other hand, I know too well the uncivilised ways of Russia and thus don't nurture too high hopes of justice being realised.

Lesson learned: watermarks are a must! Will replace all of my public images with watermarked versions.
