Default Unauthorized use of my photo on Hilton Travel Organizers web

A grafic designer contacted me to ask if i had given permission for use of one of my photos on a travel agent's web site. I had not. It seems they stole it from TE. The only way the designer knew or could contact me was from my byline on the bottom of the photo. Something to note.

I think TE members should be aware of this sort of problem, and i think it should be allowed by TE admin to include watermarks on select images depending on the owner's / member's "paranoia".
