Imagine you are reading a best selling novel and realize the author stole chapter one from you. Even if the lawsuit isn’t a nice payday for you, the bad publicity probably won’t be helpful to the writers career. People might turn a critical eye toward finding what else is stolen.  How is that any different than a person using a picture that doesn’t belong to them on the cover?  But, what if it’s not a best selling novel? What if it’s a blog or the web page for a hardware store?  How would you  even know it was used?
