[DML] Watermarking photos was:eBay fraud

I don't do it to enough of my own pictures that I publish, but there is 
something to be said about watermarking everything.
A transparent logo or web address or copyright would make it a real 
pain for those who steal (they would have to clean it up in photoshop 
or something.)
I suspect thieves would simply go to the next set of pictures that 
didn't have the same careful markings and steal them.

Watermarking also serves others who could easily identify fraud when a 
stupid thief uses a protected image.
It makes sense, cause once it's out there, it's out there for the 
entire world to see (and steal)  -forever.
