Photography, theft and copyright…

Hey guys.

I was just reading this article from the Sydney Morning Herald about a photograph theft and big scale companies more or less ‘trampling little guy’. It’s actually the second article I’ve read just this morning about photographers’ images being stolen and reused by others.

I’m keen to hear some opinions. Do you watermark your images? And if so, is it a small watermark on the side or corner or do you cover the whole image, even if it can be distracting? Though my photos are nothing great, things like this make me wonder if I should be covering the whole photo. It’s a shame people can be so dishonest and uncaring and would steal images from other without giving credit where credit is due.
