Thanks for all the hugs, guys.

In good news, I've got one site down so far. Waiting on the rest of the DMCAs I've sent to take effect, just a waiting game for the next 48 hours, really.

AFAIC, the theft of intellectual property is worse than the theft of money.

This is why so many companies have automated DMCA scanners/takedown generators.

Unfortunately, they often send takedowns for their own stuff that they have posted themselves. Hilarity ensues.

(BigMovies Legal send takedowns for trailers that BigMovies Marketing have put up)

If someone commissions you for a graphic, and they pay for it, does it belong to them? If it belongs to them, could they legally re-sell it? I don't know the legalities there. Or is this a case where, even though they're commissioning you, the art is considered intellectual property, and therefore belongs to you, and you are selling a license to use the graphic? Again, I don't know the legalities there.

Did they come to an agreement with you or sign some type of contract that stated they would not re-sell the graphic? I don't know the legalities of that.

I'm just wondering, and I'm VERY curious about this. I'm considering doing some development work of my own, and I'll have to look into the legalities of people stealing/reselling my work.

I can't stop and talk in detail about it right now, because I just got back from the vet and now smell like cat pee and desperately need to go scourge-tastic on myself...but for my graphical templates, I do not allow resales. They're two whole different types of ballparks when it comes to copyright laws, because resale rights are so much more expensive. And by resale I take it you mean selling copies.

I have it in my contracts and in my terms of service that no resale rights are included, that it's a onetime installation/use/etc, and only for the client, they can't go willy nilly selling copies of it.
