I was just doing an image search of one of my more popular images and found it being given away for free on TIMELINECOVERS.PRO as a Facebook cover.  Anyone else had experience with this site?  I wonder how many other images of mine are on  there?  Grrrr.

At least they have a dmca link at the bottom of the page.

Is that a licensed use where someone pays a fee for web use? I think IS and SS had some of those? Or could be illegal use and they "found" the image on a free site. Good to track back. Heck I'd write and ask them for money, because they used a protected image. Maybe you'll get a payment?

Oh I looked, it's a clickbait site. Shows 12 images and has a more button for the next set. Interesting.

Which is, of course, very time consuming to have to do.

I'm sure they're just running off the ads and that the stolen images are just a way to generate traffic.  Supposedly you can download the images for free.  I didn't try as I'm not fond of viruses.

I made this weird thought.
Assuming your image was bought for commercial use.
They just publish it over or under a headline texted: Free art!
And they can always claim that your image is legally bought ande used to decorate the page with no intention to give it away as free download and that users just misused your image?

I believe they stole it from a site I used to post my photography to.  The reason I believe this is because I always watermark my photos for that stuff and this particular photo has water in it...and when I look at the water where my watermark would be, I can see that it looks like they cloned it out (poorly, I might add).
