This reminds me of something that came to mind a few days ago. I was thinking about discussions on this board about copyright, and what a pain infringement is, especially if maybe the images are not registered.

Then the thought came that it would be handy if a person using images, presented them falsely as their own. It's been said that fraud is a lot easier to deal with in regards to penalizing someone for being dishonest.
