image downloaders and copyright enforcement services
Not a very well-educated robot, then, since we're talking about the Gairdner edition of the Paston letters :)
I did some experimenting and found that sometimes the original page will come through as referer for background images that are technically called by the style sheet-- but only if, ahem, the page in question actually uses the images. I do think leaving out a referer for the favicon was a master stroke. If only they hadn't come in from ChinaCache...
:: detour to investigate much-overdue question ::
ChinaCache is the leading provider of internet content and application delivery services in China, providing a portfolio of services and solutions to businesses,
Thank you, g###, that's all I needed to know.

Delivery of web site content into China from foreign sources is a persistent challenge for content owners due to poor interconnection and latency at international gateways as well as unique and complex local rules and regulations. ChinaCache's web site acceleration service using caching and dynamic delivery technologies distributes the static and dynamic content of source web sites to end users in China through our widespread network of in-country CDN nodes.
"It's hard to access web sites from within China because webmasters on the rest of the planet tend to block the country wholesale, so we've set up a caching system using robots based outside of China to let our loyal customers view sites that are no more than a few months out of date."
Did I get that right?
Our extensive network infrastructure and relationships in China well-position us to help North American companies [or "global companies", depending on which text display you're looking at] send efficient, reliable streams into Asia.
Whether they want to or not?
MySpace has been working with ChinaCache since 2007.
Good heavens. I had no idea MySpace was around as recently as that.
