Mike is Right you do not have to put the information in metadata or visible in most countries. The actual situation does depend on the country

For the UK this is an excellent resource http://www.epuk.org/resources/faq

Some interesting stories ..

In this one there was a cost per removal for the visible symbols

In this one it cost getty $1.2million

I note the OP is in Nairobi - so UK law may not be appropriate
