Maybe you can look up a hideous background, some really ugly wallpaper
to place your PET computers and peripherals in front of. I doubt very
many commercial actors would want to steal your images if they require
a lot of retouching and clean cutting. :-D

I think the biggest risk of image stealing is dishonest eBay sellers
and alike. While you wouldn't get affected personally, you might get
sad eyed when another fellow gets cheated on $100 due to some crook
used your pictures like it was his.

Once I bought a vintage computer on eBay only to find out the day after
that every single image in the auction had been stolen from other sites.
Fortunately it turned out the seller was honest, and the computer arrived
in the described condition with all add-ons listed. The seller simply
didn't bother to bring out his camera and instead got pictures of other
people's items. A very big watermark on top of the images might have
warned me, or at least had made me ask for additional pictures.

Best regards
