Can someone translate a couple of Dutch sentences for me?

Someone in the Netherlands linked to a picture I drew (of my old school uniform, as badly drawn here) and the following phrases were used:

Bekijk slechts de afbeelding.

Afbeelding kan verkleind worden weergegeven en auteursrechtelijk beschermd zijn.

I'm just curious about what they mean! This picture has a bizarrely large number of hits.

Best answer: worldlingo gives me:

"Examine only the image.
Image can be reflected reduced and copyright to be protected to be."

Gah, fingers working faster than my brain. Almost seems like someone's trying to claim copyright on the image.

Response by poster: Oh well, I thought it would be something more interesting than that! Thanks, pupdog.

Best answer: "Just look at the image.

Image can be shown at a smaller size, and be protected by copyright."

(That doesn't really help, does it?)

Best answer: It says:

"Only look at the image. The image could be displayed reduced in size and protected by copyright."

I'm a native speaker and I think these two sentences are kind of weird in the way they are worded (almost like it is a translation from another language). I guess what it is meant to say is 'this image is copyrighted, you can have a look but don't do anything with it'.
