My site was just crawled by picsearch. First time this has happened. I searched the threads and couldn't find anything so this may be a new search engine?

A quote from picsearch:

What is psbot?
picsearch is indexing pictures from the web. To do this we use a web-crawler which identifies itself as psbot.

Even though it provides a link to back to the site, I am a bit concerned about this, as those people/sites that don't care about asking permission or paying for copyrighted pictures are going to have a field day...

The site does mention in quite a few places that all of the material is copyrighted, and that you must ask the owners permission for use.... but that won't stop them from copying if they want to.

Has this site generated any significant traffic for anyone?
