    I have an idea for WordPress.com to prevent copying of images (which is growing much in Brazil), implement the action Anti Hot-link. If a blog using an image directly from another blog without permission, the image on the blog will be posted an image of warning to prevent copies, while the original blog displays the image perfectly!

    Thank you.

    the major problem is working around the fact that anti hotlink functions would also disable images being served to RSS Readers

    There was such a feature early on at WordPress.com. It was disabled because it used a lot of resources, and because it breaks some things like RSS images as locusfist says.

    It might resurface at some point in the future if we can overcome those problems. It’s not a high priority but it is something that comes up from time to time.
