    Fool proof way is not to post anything online

    Watermarking the center of the image or the subject.

    Posting tiny images like 640 pixels @ 72dpi.

    Not to influence the case but in the Philippines it takes decades to get things resolved.

    That is so un-cool.

    You should issue a take down order I think this is not only applicable to websites.

    If they still continue to use your photos after you've gotten in contact with them, start a web smearing campaign citing bad service, swindling, and all sorts of other nasties.

    In the Philippines, there are laws but no one really enforces them.
