Legal case worth noting.

A federal court in Minnesota has ruled that a business that allegedly copied copyrighted photographs from a Web site and used the images in advertisements is liable for the removal of embedded digital watermarks from the images. The court said that the watermarks were copyright-eligible as “copyright management information.” Accordingly, their removal was an actionable copyright violation, the court said. Case name is Gregerson v. Vilana Fin. Inc.
