I believe the problem can be solved or at least better controlled by requiring passwords for downloading or uploading images to the wiki and restricting the password to members.

I find my images on there every week. Obviously I cant search all the ebays across the world. I have a look at .com and .co.uk Some people remove them immediately some in a day or two and others send a very nasty email. You can tell ebay about copyright infringement by using this form http://pages.ebay.co.uk/vero/notice.html When it comes to web sites with stolen images they should be named and shamed. In the past I have found two web sites selling plants with images of Anemones, Iris and Geraniums all mine! Both blamed their web masters.
