this is all theoreticall... Let's say there's a blog you stumbled upon... maybe they're talking generally about dolls and one of the posts is general chat about "oh so cute" or even "Why can't they make more manly men?" or something but the photo to illustrate the blog post is one of YOUR photos of YOUR doll. It's credited and there is a link back to you, but you weren't asked first about your photo being used. (It's a photo from your home, and not taken at a meet IF that makes any difference) Maybe the post isn't particularly complementary and is directly about that individual doll... Ok with you? what it if's complimentary but kinda personal, like "wow nice ass/boobs" and the blogger is anonymous but you don't think it's someone you know... still ok or not ok for your photo to be used? If when you ask the blogger not to use your photos without asking, the response is "well then you should've water marked it? without the watermark it's free for anyone to use..." or "If you don't want your work used you shouldn't put it on the net."? What if the anonymous postings are talking about having a doll that's a recast, or discussing something maybe not so savory in their doll life, and it's still your photo (with credit and link) on the anonymous posting? at what point is the random use of your photo, artwork, etc on someone else's blog not going to be OK with you? what would/could you do about it? and at what point would someone feeling discomfited be seen as over reacting? IMHO any time one uses someone else's photo /artwork or text (dolly related or not) one SHOULD ask permission first, and clearly letting the source know what the context is going to be, just to be on the safe side. Sure a DCMA will get the photo taken down, but how many DCMAs sent to a blog hosting site is going to result in losing access to the site?
