This falls more on the category of Plagiarism than Piracy. Piracy is stealing something you're supposed to pay for. Posting a copywritten image without permission or not crediting the original creator automatically means you consider the item as your own and is thus, plagiarism.

YOU really shouldn't show your car tag on the net.. not safe

I usually blur my tag in photos I post. LPt is correct; it is not safe.

Just another angle, how many peoples avatars which aren't custom made - would fall under the 'infringement' category?

My attitude towards the whole thing is read the fine print.
On my website I have many pictures which I don't own but I am allowed to use for marketing purposes (including about 2/3 of the site logo. There are no visible copywrite signs or disclaimers as to who owns the images on the pages the images are displayed, instead I just stuck a big 'all images are Copywrite -CompanyName- 2010' at the end of the terms and conditions.

So if someone comes onto my website without reading the T&Cs (which most people do) they would assume I own the images and that if they quoted my name or the company's name when reposting the images somewhere that that would be totally legal and just (which of course it isn't).
