      Chioma,
      Maybe you’re new here. But BellaNaija pays for the rights to use the picture so if it’s on their site they can watermark it. Before those who don’t pay will just take it and use. Hope that helps.

      Nope! They also watermark pictures from Instagram. Did they pay for those rights as well?
