Re: Copywriter Signatures

I don't think copyright in the metadata is enough. I have had full resolution images, with embedded copyright, stolen from one of my sites and used in marketing material by a software house some of you may be customers of (I won't name them). Their attitude was, it's on the Internet so it's free. Admittedly poor legal advice was that it was too risky to pursue them.
