You have a very interesting view on IP rights.

Yes I do. I ran a website called Graphics Depot from 1996 to 2003. I sold and gave away thousands of images. It became crystal clear to me that there are millions of people using millions of photographs every single day. You have newspapers, magazines, web pages, ad brochures, etc. If you post something on the Internet then anyone can steal it and reuse it. If you want to try and stop people from using your images illegally then you have a lifetime job just trying to find them. Stopping the crooks are totally impossible. You can either ignore the thieves or not post to the Internet. Posting and then crying is about as stupid as leaving your car running with the keys in the ignition at a shopping mall while you shop and then complaining several hours later that someone stole your car.
