Have you seen this photo?

Have you seen this photo on Pinterest linking to someone elses blog or web site? Have you seen it on Facebook? People keep hijacking this photo and using it without my permission. I’ve written emails asking that the photo be removed from their site. I’ve made the photo private on Flickr and then made it public again because my own blog doesn’t have access if it is private.
In the past I’ve uploaded and stored all my blog photos on Flickr. That way I don’t have to upload them twice. Once to Flickr and a second time to my blog. But with the new flickr changes combined with the misuse of this photo, it makes me want to close down my account. Sigh.
It’s a double sided dilemma. I can’t imagine re- uploading the photos to my blog (and then flooding the feed readers) on every single blog post since the beginning of time.
Any advice? What would you do?
