Wouldn’t a more accurate headline be “Google researchers reveal automated process for stealing the work of photographers” ?

No, since they also offer the solution to the vulnerability of current methods.

I wouldn’t think so, as this is an investigation into how to evade modern tools that remove watermarks, not develop them. That said, it’s 2017. Up is down just now, so who knows what headline is most accurate anymore??
