Is it just me?

This is a screenshot I took of this company's webpage in The Netherlands.
Yes, that's my black butterfly.

In about an hour, I found this image used, without my permission, on six different sites. 
 There were actually 10 pages where this image was found.  
With 10 hits per page, you can see how time consuming this is to check just one image.
I understand if it's on Pinterest or Etsy treasury pages. 
What I don't understand is how frequently I find my art used for Twitter pages, Tumblr accounts, poems, stories, etc.  To be used by a company is just appalling.

Yes, I sent them an email.
