Google's Big Image Grab - YOUR'S

I have one of many images now being displayed by Google for anyone who wants to steal it, Leviathan The only place I posted this image is on my web site where right click ability is blocked.
Now it’s being called The Sea Of Endless Journey to sell a web site package I have no doubt was stolen as well.
It seems people are using Google’s new image search to find work they can lift and use for free. It’s bad enough that they just take it from your site and post it full resolution on their’s but they make sure it can be easily right clicked for download too.
They even started a thread on their Webmaster Central Blog to promote it.
If Google doesn’t take it from your web site they will take it from here or from the client who paid for it. According to one of the other pissed off photographers who posted a comment he has turned off google-bot access and yet they are still getting his images.
I read a while back where Google and one of the big stock image dealers were working on something felonious, guess this is it
