Alan I feel your pain and disgust. As a photographer, my images are stolen on a regular basis. When I worked on the AQ I actually walked up on two different PAX who were pressing their digital cameras up against the glass displays, which contained photos I had shot from the cruise. One man I recalled meeting as his family boarded at Mud Island. He told me to be sure to take lots of photos of his family during the cruise because he wanted to buy them all. When I caught him copying my images with his digital camera, some sixteen of his family, I was outraged. Of course, he never bought a single image. I do what I can to protect my livelihood by superimposing copyright over images on my web site, but I'm sure some thieves will print it anyway and tape it onto the fridge.
