Bandwidth-theft or “hotlinking” is direct linking to a web site’s files (images, video, etc.). An example would be using an image tag to display a JPEG image you found on someone else’s web page so it will appear on your own website or blog.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred from a web site to a user’s computer. When you view a web page, you are using that site’s bandwidth to display the files. Bandwidth is not free! Web-hosts charge based on the amount of data transferred. If a site is over its monthly bandwidth, it’s billed for the extra data or taken offline.
A simple analogy for bandwidth theft: Imagine a random stranger plugging into your electrical outlets, using your electricity without your consent, and you paying for it.
