    If an image can be seen, it can be copied. The best you can do can be seen on this stock photos for sale website: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_search.php?action=file&text=car

    They only show smaller thumbnails of photos, and the larger ones have huge watermark on them. If someone wanted to they could still touch up the images to get rid of the watermark, but that takes time, can be a pain and you still just have that small image.
