Why do websites (like deadline.com) watermark public court documents? :/

I take it the Faulkner estate has so much money that they don’t

@the prez98: It’s so they can get identification points whenever anyone borrows the document from their site. In return for the convenience of not sending you searching for the court documents, they get their little bit of fame.
