Go for it Glitter - I watermark some of my photos, especially if I post the on social photo sites or even FB. You can also digitally watermark them, but I haven't tried that yet. I have one photo in particular that has been ripped of many times and I've filed DMCA's on anyone who doesn't include a photo credit. I fully warn people in the copyright notice on my site, but most of these hit & run artists don't even bother to check. I take content copyrights VERY seriously and respect all copyright owners.
One thing that really corks me with Google is their addition of the full DMCA report from Chilling Effects at the bottom of the serps. What do casual users care about DMCA reports? Plus, it makes me look like an a-hole for filing to protect my content against a thief. Sorry if I trotted off topic a little there. I digress.
