Please Don't Hot Link

Someone of Naver.com, came here, copy the exactly url of my images and post it on her/his website, blog or whatever:

Bandwidth theft or "hotlinking" is direct linking to a web site's files (images, video, etc.). An example would be using an tag to display a JPEG image you found on someone else's web page so it will appear on your own site, eBay auction listing, weblog, forum message post, etc.

Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred from a web site to a user's computer. When you view a web page, you are using that site's bandwidth to display the files. Since web hosts charge based on the amount of data transferred, bandwidth is an issue. If a site is over its monthly bandwidth, it's billed for the extra data or taken offline.

A simple analogy for bandwidth theft: Imagine a random stranger plugging into your electrical outlets, using your electricity without your consent, and you paying for it.

Excuse me but since when Blogger is a pay service?

Its a free service from Google, the images are also hosted by Google so were exactly are you suffering from Bandwidth theft?

Anon, if you have an account in blogspot, you'll see that you have 2 options, upload here or with a link to your images server, so, the last pictures, were for my photobucket, so if you don't know, don't post a comment like that if don't have any idea. Do you want to see my stats in photobucket?

No need, I understand that.

The image link shows a blogger address so I naturally assume they were hosted by blogger.

Photobucket is a different ballgame and hot linking is a issue.
