Default Re: How to check if your photos have been stolen

I also have many photos here that are duplicated in at least another public site and they never appear in TinEye. It may be just a coincidence, but I find it intriguing how it is capable of finding duplicates in some apparently not so popular forums and sites and it doesn't find anything of mine in photo sites. Maybe they avoid indexing photo sites for performance reasons; after all it is an experimental service. However, I find their algorithm amazingly effective in most situations. I think that the fact that he "finds" images that aren't the same, but were taken in the same place proves that, as it is preferable to have some false positives than many false negatives.
