    I kinda' understand the idea behind this legislation; to streamline the fair use rules and cut red tape; but I think that the "due dilligence" rule should apply to visible AND invisible watermarking. Since most methods of digital watermarking are known, any reasonable person could be expected to look for them.

    Although one could assume that, if somebody removes a watermark, they intend to steal an image it is possble for one person to remove a watermark and post an image which is then used by a second person who doesn't find one, even though they looked for it. This would put the burden guilt back on the first person and serve to protect a well-intentioned subsequent person from unintended consequences.
    How do you make an invisible watermark?

    Really? How did you know it was from here and how is it useful in such a small size format?

    That's a good point. If all you ever post are pictures 850 pixels on the long side, they can't be used for much other than web use at the same size or smaller.

    I don't worry too much about my small sized images being stolen. If one was, (none have been, to my knowledge) I would hope it was by someone with deep enough pockets to sue into oblivion, and that there were no easy out for them, such as " we looked, we really did, and now he can have the five bucks we paid into the slush fund, instead of that unreasonable rate he really charges".

    Seriously, arent there enough dime a dozen Internet stock snaps available? Do we really need legally sanctioned " i dunno's" on top of it?
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    Sounds like a thieves' charter to me. You can bet there's some wealthy Tory party donor(s) who will benefit greatly from this. Bloody politicians. :-(

    Steve.

    But Steve, all newspapers have their own websites!...they no longer need large reproduction pin-sharp material, the mobile phone stuff is acceptable nowdays.

    Facebook is also a regular hunting ground for digging out pictures of people who suddenly find themselves in the news. All these pictures are someone's copyright.

    When did newsprint ever need "pin sharp" images?

    Back in the days of black & white, when we covered news stories the final print size was 15"x12", and editors demanded top rate picture quality, instead of concerning themselves with lowlife showbiz "celebrities" as is the case today.
