Adding watermark to a videos is a good way to stamp your ownership and prevents illegal claims. The watermarks are generally placed at the top or bottom corners of the video. It helps you claim the copyright of your owned videos. It is a gentle way to stamp your identification like your name, company name or date of creation on a visual material because it does not obstruct the view.
