Re; Image security
Context of comment:Well your correct of course Simon, if somebody really wants to steal your image they'll find a way no matter what you do to prevent it.

BleckCra's argument that he would'nt be worse off is a subjective point, not everyone may feel this, or even base the assumption on a cash value. BleckCra has taken some lovely images as you have, if one of his better images appeared on another website under a different author maybe he would not feel uneffected.

I certainly don't claim to have discovered the perfect solution but I think it's good to have a debate nonetheless.

And yes it seems that protection is expensive especially anything really effective.

But what about keeping it simple-the humble watermark, a transparent MV logo on every uploaded pic would mean that if they are going to be copied and moved around the web, at least they will have some identification of their originality. Not everyone will know how or be bothered to take the effort of removing the watermark .

MV already has a respectable number of images on the site and I presume in the future this will only grow and pictures only improve as the technology develops and more people bring cameras to the mountains.
