It's called hotlinking i think.

It's happened before and people have been banned because of it i believe.

The site you are copying off will have something that sends a different image when accessed from another site, its a sort of 'stop stealing my bandwidth' measure but a bit more extreme.

Save the image to your hard disc and upload to [url]www.imageshack.us[/url]

I remember reading about thisprofesional photographer guy who found some people leaching his wedding photos for their site so he replaced all the 'beautiful brides' with this:

No. they will be hosted on another server that allows hotlinks rather than pointing directly to the original.

Yes I did, and very interesting it was too.
I just assumed ( possibly wrongly ) that "I am going to copy any pics I post." meant that they would end up on Predi's computer.
