Let you have done the research, invested time, write your blog post and published.
After a couple of days, when you look on the search engine results like on Google that displays a post which copied your content with a higher ranking than your original post. IT REALLY REALLY HEARTS. You would think about your research, time and work what have you destroyed for this bullshit, and you would start to blame on Google. Do not agree on this issue because it is alright that you have researched, invested time and much more efforts, but had you thought about your content or images protection? If your answer is why we have to think about, you should know that search engines may detect the original content, but they are based on various types of algorithm so the copyright detection is also based by their algorithm, therefore, the copyright detection may be true for 80% or 90%, but can not be 100% true.

Therefore, here is a copyright protection of your WordPress content or images.
