DO NOT HOTLINK/DIRECT LINK to any of my images!!!
Bandwidth theft or "hotlinking" is direct linking to
a website's files (images, video, etc.). An example would be using
an <IMG> tag to display a JPEG image you found on someone
else's web page so it will appear on your own site, journal, weblog,
forum posting, etc.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred from a website
to a user's computer. When you view a webpage, you are using that
site's data transfer to display the files. Since web hosts charge
based on the amount of data transferred, bandwidth is an issue.
If a site is over it's monthly bandwidth, it's billed for the
extra data or taken offline.
A simple analogy for bandwidth theft: Imagine a random stranger
plugging into your electrical outlets, using your electricity
without your consent, and you paying for it.

HOW DO I KNOW I'M HOTLINKING?
Think about how you display an image graphic in HTML on your web
<IMG src="image.jpg" height="350" width="200">
This tag tells the site to request the image.jpg file from the
same server as the rest of the site. But if you were to hotlink
an image from an outside server it might look like this:
<IMG src="http://notmysite.com/image.jpg" height="350"
Every time the page is loaded, the outside server has to use
it's bandwidth to display the image. To avoid this problem, don't
link to files on servers that don't belong to you. To share
images and files on your own web page, upload them to your own
server or to one of the many free website providers.
I can and will find direct linker trough my site statics, and
when I do, I give you 72 hours to remove all the direct links.
If you do not comply I am in my rights:
Displaying an image or file that doesn't belong to you is a violation
of copyright, making you open to litigation. As I am the owner
of the copyright, I could utilize DMCA law to have your site shut
down and your information given for use in legal proceedings.
