For those that weren't already aware, you can hunt down your own images elsewhere on the net by dragging and dropping from JP into Google Image search. Simple albeit painstaking.

When someone copied an image of mine here in NZ, a lawyer advised that the copyright claims process can take up to 2 years and if I won I would only be awarded income lost as a result of the infringement, and that's not automatically considered equal to the offender's gain. However it was a manipulated photo, rather than a clear-cut case of copy and paste, nonetheless not very promising advice.
