freejung - It will stay that way for some time to come, but one thing is for sure many will block google, must be done with .htaccess I dont trust google to respect robots.txt in anyway.
Now I still just see it in USA, but will spread in the next few days. If we see google image as a user I would rather have that the thumbs goes directly to the website with that image. Also what google forgets here is a image is not all, mostly there is text add to a image and in your case terms or other functions.
