That's nice and all, however the lawyer get's his big house and the photographer get's satisfaction after all the stress of a court case. Yeh!

I have gone to court over negatives even if you win you never win. My hats off to those who fight the good fight. I just found another one of my photos, taken from my site and placed on a site (UK) with countless ads. It's a site dedicated to designers, I'm glad I have my fairly large watermark advertising my site on the picture.

I'm amazed at how many cool pictures I see on this site that don't have fairly prominent watermarks. No it doesn't take away from the composition or the viewer's ability to see the beauty in the photo and if bothers someone - well they can always license it. It would be nice if photographer's who were serious about their craft made sure all their images that were online were watermarked to subtly say photography has value and no it's not free
