Client: We need you to put a watermark on all of our photos for the website so that no one can steal them.

Me: Okay. I’ll need the original photos in a digital format so I can start placing the watermark on them before I upload them onto the new site.

Client: No, no. Just get online and take the photos from [competitor’s site].

Me: You mean the photos that have their name watermarked over them so that people can’t steal them?

Client: Yes. Just photoshop out their watermark and then put our watermark on top.

Me: That’s illegal.

Client: No its not. Those photos are on Google. Anyone can use them.
