For starters, check the email headers + whois the domain name. Chances are the email originates from their server. Analyze the requests from that range and blackhole those suckers. eventus msg:4168733 7:28 pm on Jul 12, 2010 (gmt 0)
Yeah.. trap them in a way that sends their server resource sky high. oodlum msg:4168803 10:13 pm on Jul 12, 2010 (gmt 0)

When you detect the scraper action send him the images as a binary stream that never ends (at a very low bitrate). After all, you have an agreement to share all your data, right?
