|What measures do you take to protect your work against Internet piracy?
Watermark my images, right across the image.
I use meta tagging, overlays of copyright and contracts. After that I call my layer.
I don't have any full size images online, they are all web size images. Other than that, I don't use watermarks.
Almost none, except that I place copyright notices on my images.
Lowest res jpegs that will adequately show the image so that it's only good for web viewing
Metadata, and when possible by line within photo.
If it's online, and someone wants it bad enough, there's no protecting it. I use flash for my galleries, which makes it a bit more work for thieves, and I watermark and metadata my copyright info, but I feel anything else is simply wasted effort.
None, I don't believe you can without harming the online look of your website. If someone uses my work without my permission and I find out, I would resort to legal action.
My website is built with Flash and that has kept people from grabbing my work of the web, but designers have complained to me about the fact that they cannot place my work in mockup to pitch ideas, and it makes it tougher to pitch me and my work to a client. I try to regularly copyright my work and always make sure to keep my metadata up to date.
copyright information in all my files. Online images are additionally protected through my stock library, Ozimages International.
Nothing - They are really too lo-res to publish or print. I occasionally follow the links from my web host to see where people have put them as decoration on their My Space sites, etc. I put copyright notices in the metadata. I copyright my images.
I watermark the images, but it is small. I also have a part of every image file _Copyright_Steve_Thornton.jpg to further inform anyone that the image is copyrighted. But if someone wants to steal the image they will, and have.
Iím not happy about this but I donít loose sleep over it.
all my images are copyrighted. Web images are meta tagged with the copyright and contact information.
I copyright my images with the Library of Congress.
Keep them small but still looking good. I'd rather have an art director get a good look at my work, rather than watermark and worry about somebody making a copy just because it looks cool. The big dogs know better, Mom and Pop shops don't. If they aren't making money from it, I don't care.
