Auto Watermark and/or protecting photos from being copied

New user to the Gallery, (you can see ours here: http://www.tacomafire.org/photogallery.php). I am really liking some of the features that I have access to with this, and definitely beats me having to do this kind of stuff manually. I am the web master for my fire company's website, and my chief had approached me about the ability of protecting the photos. One thing he wants to be able to do is to make it so that pictures can't be copied (or as easily) for other people's gain. I know it's very difficult to completely secure a picture, but if there are means for anything in Gallery that will help me protect pictures and deter other users from copying them, then that would make things so much easier.
In addition to something like that, is there anything that automatically "watermarks" the pictures? If I have a lot of pictures for a particular incident, I typically break them down into albums by the person(s) who took the pictures. I wouldn't mind a feature that goes through, and adds what I want watermarked somewhere in the picture to also help deter other users and secure them further. I have just found out that a member of another fire company in our district has used pictures taken by our members, placed them into a slideshow on YouTube and decided to take all of the credit for themselves.
Is there any addition I can add to Gallery2 to make this possible? If so, how do I do it? I am really a newbie when it comes to this program, I'm trying to learn everything that I can but of course the process is slow.
