Oddly, my sympathies with people hitting the roof over their copyright

But people don't. I've killed quite a colection of userpage copyvios.
Most people are understanding.
Perhaps I've missed some important point about how

Ok you have a user breaking copyright policy. You explain to them
which part of policy they are breaking and if they ask why they we
have this policy. They then remove the image. You now have a user that
understands at least part of our copyright policy and understands that
being polite and civil is the way we do things on wikipedia. Get it
right and they may even help you deal with further copyvios. Most
people want to be good editors. It is better to help them be good
editors rather than trying to bludgen them into being good editors.
