They're used exactly for that purpose...or just to give the viewer information such as the artist's name or website for their future reference. But yeah, ultimately its used to prevent people from stealing others' art. You'd be amazed how many people try selling prints of other peoples' art. It's even happened to duey. I remember some lady tried selling a Jessica Alba portrait that duey did awhile back.

There are various ways to make them. If you're a member of deviantart or other websites similar to it, they usually ask you if you want to include a watermark over whatever picture you are submitting. You can also open the picture up in Photoshop (or any program like it) and create a layer above your photo with text, another picture, or anything else you want as your watermark. Then you would just lower the opacity of that layer so you can still see your art underneath.

I figure my artwork's not good enough for anyone to want to copy it anyway... so just don't put out high quality work and you'll never have to worry about watermarks or anyone stealing it!
Just your typical waffle-loving Canadian.
