Watermarks are all over the internet.  A large number of millennials will be familiar with them.

If I understand your question a water mark is something you put on a document to label without obscuring it completely like DRAFT or SAMPLE etc

Of course they do.

It is the NECESSARY addition one must make when they know their stuff is going to be stolen.

Agents should watermark the listing images so that when the MLS, the franchise and NAR sell agent IP to zillow, the agent will be seen as the originator. But, since none of those I identify  are concerned regarding the agent, they impose prohibitions to such watermarking..

Kathryn,

We ocasionally use them as part of a brand.  It depends on the style of the watermark and whether someone identifies with it.  A
