Alamy has watermarks. Bigstock too. Envato thumbnails are tiny in comparison.

But it doesn't make it less of a problem if almost everyone let's you grab images for free in perfect blog size...

It makes them do less work for an image though. Just go to Fotolia and download their comp for free  ...
No need to search google or grab it from a "blog".

I think if thieves know an image is for sale on micro, it is a hard case to prove - it's in the wild.

This IS the problem.
Fotolia removed the watermark on thumbnails?

I don't remember any watermark on the thumbnails.

Shutterstock has not
Adobe stock has not
Dreamstime has not
iStock/Getty has not (and their "thumbnails are twice bigger that the one of the other sites)
Envato has not
CanStock Photo has not
Depositphotos has not
Bigstock has not
123RF has not
Zoonar has not
GL Stock Images has not
Alamy has not
Mostphotos has not

So, where is the problem?

Yes, fundamentally it is.

But personally I don't care a lot because I know that many of my images are used, or will be used, without my consent.
This is part of the game and, unfortunately, if I want to be part of the game I have to play it as it is

By the way my "So, where is the problem?" was a little "ironic/sarcastic"
