    Is it allowed for someone to copy-paste my photos without asking me and place them in his/her website? Should there at least be a link or reference? I am subject of such a behavior and I would like to be given information on this matter. Thank you for your time.

    Every day, bloggers are victimized (whether they are aware of it or not) by having their content stolen, scraped, and unlawfully copied. Please see here for how to proceed http://en.support.wordpress.com/content-theft-what-to-do/

    Copyright is automatically vested in the creator so whatever you yourself create online or offline is automatically under your copyright. You do not need to apply for copyright and everyone who wishes to use your work must ask for permission in advance of using it. that being said, theft is rampant and that’s why I provided the second link above for you.
