Can someone explain "images or videos that contain prominent watermarks are also prohibited."
What does this entire phrase actually mean??? "For the same reason, images or videos that contain prominent watermarks are also prohibited. This rule applies even if they are your own photos or videos, or photos or videos that you have the legal right to use."
Does this mean I cannot put my Signature on my artwork and post it on hubpages? It must all be done without the "Splaxography" that I normally add to my photos?
Usually watermarks are used to protect videos and pictures from stealing by owners. This is the reason why using such pictures and videos are prohibited
The key point is "prominent". You can sign sign your work, no problem. A discreetly placed copyright or signature along the edge is perfectly acceptable (so far as I've encountered). If your signature covers most of the image (or screen, in the case of a video), it cannot be used. HP wants readers to see the image/video, not a watermark. It's about the quality of the content. A huge watermark detracts and obscures.

These sites are super relevant to readers and do contain tons of free content plus some links to amazon and so...
