Art Theft Image

To Watermark or not to watermark …. that is the question

Just had a nice conversation with someone who thought they could resell one of my images without my permission. So here we go with the perennial question …….. if the images that get posted either on Facebook or Twitter or here or wherever have no watermark are they fair game? Alternatively if you have a discrete watermark on your images, does it detract from the image? Now im not talking about some of the huge monstrosities that destroy the actual image, but a small, well positioned, subtle watermark.
I’d love to hear your views on this subject
