In spite of your best efforts, people will try to illegally use your photographs on other websites. When you create a photograph, it is your intellectual property and you own the copyright. If the ownership of an image is ever in question, the metadata can prove who created the photograph. You can easily add your copyright information to images you import into the Lightroom catalog by creating a metadata template and adding it to each image you import.

The steps work in the current version of the application: Lightroom CC or Lightroom 6.
