that a copyright stamp should be in an external database that has no

someone who has had their image or recording pirated and relied on the
EMBEDDED copyright information to make their case.

OTOH, relying on EXIF info is usually a wasted effort.

Exif information is not immutable. In fact, its useful precisely because it is
changeable.
Its a stupid thief that doesn't purge exif data immediately upon theft, and
crop a little bit
and re-save the image, thus destroying every indication of source.
