    If I look at an image on a website, my computer will temporarily download a copy of it. This shouldn't be a problem as the reason for putting images on a website is for people to look at them on their computers.

    It's only when they start uploading them to other places that it becomes a problem.

    Steve.

    i agree steve ...
    that is the difference between looking at an image / " personal use "
    and someone either hotlinking your image to their website, or ebay selling page
    or an ad agency snatching an image off of flickr or wherever it might be hanging out
    and using it in an ad campaign. there are digital watermarks ( like digimark )
    that allow photographers and painters &c to embed a homing device
    into the image to track where and how it is being used.

    i have had trouble in the past with a very large and well known real estate developer
    retaining my work ( without paying for it ) and publishing it without my consent. as you said
    that it a lot different than a photograph of cute puppies, or a slick cityscape, or hollowbody telecaster
    someone found on flickr and has on his/her computer in their rotating screen saver.
