I am starting to see copyright notices across the images. While it obscures
the image, it prevents the cropping to remove it.

At lease they are not removing the copyright notice and/or photo credit!
Kind of a gray area.

I have to agree with Brian on this, it is electronic publishing. Just ask
the Washington Post or New York Times if their web sites are any different
from a copyright point of view from their paper versions.
I'm sure they would spend a great deal of money and time in court to
convience you otherwise.
