Stealing someone else's work

Today I stumbled upon a mail order cake site based in India. Apparently they've been using images from my portfolio and claim it theirs. I also discovered that they've got images from other cake sites too. Do they not even capable taking picture of their own work ?
Is it just a lazyness because it is so easy just take other's work, copy them and sell them cheap?

I don't mine people use images on my sites for design inspiration, but please don't just copy it and claim it yours. I really don't know how to react in this situation.

Fat sculpture featured on Environment Times

My work has been featured on Environment Times website. The 'works in fat' competition helt at Birmingham's NEC is being sponsored by Anglian Water as part of a campaign to raise awareness about potential pollution caused by the incorrect disposal of waste fats, oils and grease in sewers.

Quoted fromt the site:

“Pollution which results from blockages in the sewer can be devastating for the environment. It is therefore important we do all we can to raise awareness about the issues. The Works in Fat competition is a wonderful way to promote artistic and creative flair whilst also drawing attention to a potentially very serious problem for communities."
