That doesn't take care of the problem of having other people's pages LINKED to my graphics. You can link to a graphic on another site as easily as your own, the difference being that the server where the graphic "lives" has to do the work of sending the image. The typical parasite is a user who wants pretty images and doeesn't want to pay the traffic charges for serving them up or doesn't have room for them on their own site. Less common it's a weaselly person who recognizes good graphics and doesn't want to spend the time to develop their own.
