Well what does everybody think.
I know they are removed when you sign in but other sites like discogs have no watermarks that I can see when not signed in.

One sort of good thing about the watermarks are that on auction sites (ebay) you will often see LDs for sale with a grabbed picture from LDDb.com where the seller has not bothered to take a picture of the actual item so the watermark is an instant take care notice. If they can't be bothered to take a picture of the item or even hunt down a picture from google images or the like without a watermark is enough for me to take great care, more often than not avoid.

Many "collectors" sites, auction sites & sale sites use watermarks to deter such picture use so perhaps a good idea here as is is.

Would most users here not sign-in as a matter of course to access the forum etcetera?
