We also use apache mods to prevent off-site linking to our images, but that still doesn't completely protect us.
Is there a way to prevent anyone from copying images from your web site for their own use? We have watermarking, but again, determination supercedes that protection also.
Appreciate the rapid response!
No matter what you do, someone can make a screen shot, crop and save in less than 2 minutes rendering server side and web browser blocks completely useless.
Copyright everything (file the paperwork), label everything with your copyright, then sit back and collect a second income settling with violators. I made thousands last year off idiots stealing my content, and they settle quick when you point out a good intellectual property lawyer starts @ $250/hour :)
BTW, if you want to have some real fun, put a page on your web site under "terms and conditions" stating that all unauthorized image usage will be billed at $1,500 per image and all unauthorized web page content usage will be billed at $6,000 per page and just send them a bill when it shows up stolen.
