Hotlinking my pictures as backgrounds

A couple of times over the recent weeks, traffic has suddenly spiked here on my blog server. I don’t pay for the traffic, so I don’t care that much, but I usually investigate – and most times, it’s random people using a high-quality JPEG I posted of some piano keys as a profile picture. I guess I should feel flattered, but none the less, they always get a rewrite to the copyright overlay I usually use. I hope they’ll get it at some point, or I’ll have to start watermarking all my pictures. 🙁

If you’re reading this, and want to use one of my pictures on your webpage: Write a comment, send me an email, or otherwise, get in touch with me. Don’t just use them without asking. It might end up being expensive.
