If Person X has control of the image on the remote site, and it's being remote-loaded on DW by Person Y, Person X could contact us and we'd take action to remove it (assuming Person X made the copyright complaint in the proper format, of course!) We haven't gotten any situations like those, though; it's all been Person Y uploading Person X's image to webspace they control, and Person X wanting us to remove the image, which we couldn't, as we don't control Person Y's webspace, and even if we did anything to make the DW entry go away, it wouldn't change the fact that Person Y is still (allegedly) violating Person X's copyright. (ie, they could then repost the entry containing the image, or post it somewhere else, etc)
