You mean you want to know how to distinguish between the two or you want to know how to find them out?

How to tell if your image has been linked to or stolen

Post Thu Aug 28, 2003 2:11 am


One (albeit expensive) way is to embed watermarking and tracking technology in your image (Digimarc's technology is an example), so that you can track the image across the web and prove that the image is yours. (I don't believe this works if a smaller image -- as in the case of the pbase thumbnails -- is stolen, since I don't think they retain the watermarking.)

Another way is to use Google for tracking. By typing the operator "link:" (no quotes) with your URL behind it (example: link:www.google.com), it will return with results of pages that link to your page/image.

In this case, I was contacted by someone who'd seen my images on the Hong Kong site and realized they were stolen.
