Watermarks are a good way of protecting the project you are on from piracy. Basically, when you are creating your property burn-in for your reel, you put the initials of who the sequence is going to in the middle of the frame.
Then in the title tool, highlight the initials (or facility name) and bring the opacity of the titles to about 90percent. Bring the opacity of the shadow to around 88percent. Play with it so it is visible on light scenes, but not too much on dark scenes.
By doing this, your initials/facility name are visible, but the opacity allows the viewer to see through the text. And by having it in the center of picture, there is no way to get rid of the text. Your output is protected.
