How to deal with sites linking to your images

It always amuses me this one… It’s not hard to find people linking to your images. In doing so they are stealing both copyright and bandwidth from you.Its not on to do this without permission – so, when you find them, dealing with it is very simple. Just replace the image on your site with one of your choice and hey presto, you’ll p**s them off royally.

My favourite from the annals of history is the guy who had the Conservative Party displaying an image from his site – he replaced the image of a politician with one of a penis.

Here’s one I prepared earlier after we found someone stealing from Canary Nightlife.
