A new copyright style

Years ago, friends told me “If you really want to deter people from stealing your photos, you’re going to have to put a big ugly watermark in the center of the image, making the image far less desirable to anyone browsing the Web for photos they want.” I balked at that idea, as it is a very ugly solution to the problem. However, years have passed and still nothing meaningful has been done to protect creative works, and in fact – things have gotten much, much worse. Yes Pinterest – I’m looking at YOU.

So I have given in and done it. This is how images on my blog will appear from now on:
