    Huge words DRAFT across the image and they market it anyway.

    If so, not against a photographer though, as that's a 3D rendering.

    All the images at these links too:

    Even floor plans also draft

    Regardless photographer or not, its a breach against content creators. We should not discriminate photographers vs not-photographers.

    Of course. I pointed that out as this is the "Photo Biz" section after all, might not have been the best place to post it if the infringement was not against a photographer (not that it makes the infringement any less wrong).

    it may be the marketer is also content owner and put Draft words to deter pirates

    No decent marketeer will do that... put out an EDM with draft all over it... goodness.

    Highly unlikely. The only time a marketeer would plaster draft across would be if it were a mockup to be shown to stakeholders.

    Assuming you are right though, would it not make more sense to plaster the copyright owners' name or company's name over it?
