This DRM is an extension of what the music/film/video industry is doing

I don't see this as being of any value for low resolution 8-Bit images.

If someone wants to rip off an image they will, regardless of the "protection" embedded within the original file.

It's also likely it would limit uploads to many social/sharing sites.
