Many of the stolen photos were watermarked and many times you can make our that there was a watermark. They are good at blurring out the original watermark and then placing their own over top of the blurred spot or just cropping out the watermark. Many of the overseas suppliers steal photos as well so they don't mind giving others permission to use them
