It means money.

But if you care about those images is because they mean money right?

I don't care if someone steals an image from my site as I don't put
the ones that give me money online. Which brings us to the article
that Isaac points us to: 

"If you don't want people copying your images off your site,
don't put them online to begin with." 

Using applets/plugins/similars is out of the question.
Do not use them.
(hey, use Flash!)

<tip type="design manuals" author="Gorriti">
Get yourself a good template before even saying something
like 'yes, sure, we will give you one of those' to the 
client. It will give you a good overview one the
workload it means.

(Pain? who said pain?)
