What's the worse that happens if someone steals them? It's not like they were gonna pay you, so can you just feel flattered?

I don't work my ars* off to be payed in flattery

People steal images for their own websites. Websites that they make money off through advertising, etc. So if that happens, I get paid in flattery and they get paid in currency. I't doesn't sound like a fair deal to me.. does it you?

Also there are website's that scrape images from the web, claim them as their own, and sell them as prints. They even watermark the images with their water mark 'To protect them from theft' :-/

Im not attacking you Cane, I just think your a little naive as to what happens out their in cyberworld. Just as I was naive to the ability of the watermark removing software..   ..that Richard has shown.
