Are there any site that support fetching pictures from Flickr?

Why would you even think of putting stock ready pics on Flickr. People won't buy them because they already have them. The copyright notices mean nothing there in today's world, making it a big dash and grab. And yes, even businesses have done it.

You can turn of download of full size images so others can only view...

My point of view is that any business or person who choose to steal a photo instead of buying it will never buy it.

Buyer will thus not steal pictures and thieves will not buy pictures  ;)

two things to remember:
1)they will block any link to stock photo sites of your portfolio
2) they use your photos without permission on their own sites
eg. did anyone see the weather sites? there's flickr photos
being used. i wonder if the photographers know that.
i was shocked to find that out. :o

I tried and Dreamstime is blocked. It looks like Shutterstock and ISP are fine, but I'm not 100% sure. Alamy and Photoshelter definitely work.
For me, being completely new, putting some of my images on Flickr is some form of pubblicity and I can take the risk of seen my (poor) images being stolen. I'm not that good to be worried about that now :D
More seriously, do you need a Pro account to disable downloading?

yes, you need a Pro account.
Oh btw, I checked the weather site, dullegg is right.

They use flickr photos there. Wonder if the photographers get paid for that.
