I have followed this threat and also I have under the previous week called and talked to a lots of marketing agencies that buys a lot of photos from the web.

I am guessing that was a Freudian slip  ;D ;D and you 'meant' to say thread!!!

That saves us from the eventual sneaker, but not from the mal-intended buyer.  You should make this option a photographer's choice.  After all, it's our work that will be unprotected, so it should be our choice to leave the images unprotected or not.

Good suggestion.  Make it the COPYRIGHT HOLDER'S choice.  I started with RedBubble and pulled everything for this reason.   I'm hedging on uploading to MostPhotos, but if you give a choice on watermark I'll make some time for it and I bet a lot of others will too.

Offering a choice is always something that will win you huge points with contributors.  Then those who are foolish enough not to choose it will be the ones who suffer from this type of abuse. 

123 gives a tool to place the watermark exactly where we want it.  Amazing feature.

Just a question Arian, what is MostPhotos position with prosecuting those who steal (non-watermarked) images from your site?

I find it interesting that my highest selling photo on Lucky Oliver has the strongest watermark I have seen.  Buyers might not like watermarks but does it stop them buying?  I don't think it does and it can prevent people taking our photos for free.  I much prefer the option of selling a small version of the image for 1 euro than removing watermarks.
