They're coming from hotlinks to images on my site.As I mentioned in this thread:
Don't forget, you have final control over that hotlinked image.In my case Google itself is serving the hotlinked images. Google has copied my images, and in this case the "thief" is hotlinking to my images on t0.gstatic.com. I can't stop hotlinking to Google itself.
If you download WMT "all sources of errors" the spreadsheet has a nice column listing all the domains and pages involved in this mess.
Good or bad?
I'm seeing a bunch of these as well. The funny thing is that they're coded wrong, so presumably the images are not actually being hotlinked. I'm not going to worry about it much, but if I see a spike in bandwidth I'll disable hotlinking for a while.

Why in the world would these even be reported as crawl errors?
we can not be keepers of other people's websites
