With the amount of images I am finding being stolen lately, especially my aviation stuff the watermark is now a must. But I wont get into the watermark/ no watermark argument that is all over UER lol. =P
It's fairly easy to photoshop out most watermarks. If someone wants it bad enough, they will take it.
Personally, if I was worried about theft, I'd stick to posting lower resolution (800px or less) images online, and submit copies all my images to the U.S. Copyright office. I would do this way before ever posting anything online.
It also never hurts to embedded your copyright information into the metadata of All your photos. A lot people don't erase the metadata before posting the stolen images online.
This is all just my opinion though.
