"Webmasters are ever searching for ways to make their sites
look cool and attractive. One way is to dress it up with
images, logos, and other graphics--sometimes referred to as
'eye candy.' Of course, if you happen to be in the forefront of
this in any way, you run the risk of having others cadge your art
in order to dress up their sites. And they probably won't even ask
permission nor pay you a royalty, either. This article shows
how you can use Apache configuration directives to limit access to
your art so that it's more difficult to use elsewhere."
"Simply put, there are two types of "infringement" involved
Someone uses an IMG tag on its site to refer to a graphic on
Someone downloads an image from your site and makes a copy on
"The first type not only causes your images to prettify someone
else's site, but hurts you more directly because visitors to their
site are hammering yours to get the images. ... The second type of
theft is more insidious. ... You can't completely prevent either of
these, of course, but you can make them more difficult to do."
