    That's sickening. I would start watermarking your pictures. Not that it'll stop it 100%.. but it will detract people who aren't proficient with photo editing software

    They have been notified and warned. Craigslist have removed their ad - they take these things very seriously because the original ad utilizes their site for copyright infringement.

    The internet has made it very easy for such things to happen.

    Watermarking Photos

    [‘Sharing photos, especially if you will be posting them online or emailing them, you never know what will happen to them. Someone could take the photos for their own use, and you might never even know. Here is a simple step-by-step tutorial on protecting images by watermarking your photos

    (How to Watermark Your Photos

    While there are many ways to protect images, watermarking is probably the most effective. Several other methods, such as right-click disabling and adding a transparent gif image file on top, both have a work-around that the experienced photo-stealer knows or they are time-consuming.

    Put your watermark in several locations. If it’s on a vehicle, put it over a curved line, as they present a challenge when removing and cloning the underneath. Another good place is an obvious colour blend/change.’] [5]

    can't you also eliminate the ability for someone to right click/copy/save? that, in addition to a watermark should help significantly.
