People dowlnloading and re-uploading photos as their own...

Something has been bothering me tremendously about the Ancestry site recently, and I wanted to make a post to see if anyone else has the same problem. My tree is public, because connection is the point of the Ancestry project. However, I have worked very hard to locate and, in some cases, restore many old family photographs, which takes a good amount of time and energy. Many people simply connect to the photograph as the system was intended to be used, but certain people are downloading my photographs and then re-uploading them as their own original submissions! I can't imagine why anyone would do this, except to be able to claim the documents as their own. Does anyone else have this problem? Every time I locate another lost photo, I hesitate when uploading it, because I know the same people are going to pirate my work yet again...
