I have a suggestion, although it is a bit of work....

Why not put a watermark on top of your pictures here? Provide the originals (without watermarks) on the Museum CDs. That way, if someone absconds with your photos, they either advertize your site (watermark) or they provide you with a bit of income (bought CDs). It also provides something of an incentive for others to buy your CDs, too.

That's a terrible idea.

While it is bad form to use the HP museum pictures on ebay, it does not really hurt us, and we are not in the business of providing buyer protection on ebay.
