Re: Any Way to keep images from being stolen?

This isn't a solution to the question, just a humorous tale. A
company I designed a site for found out that a competitor was
using one of their pictures. I was amazed to realize that the
competitor did not save the image to their own server, instead
hard coded the the reference in their own code (src="http;//...etc.)

This was too precious to pass up. By adding an 800 number to the image
we were able to divert about thirty calls from the competitor. After
four days they finally wised up.

It was fun while it lasted!
