I have a customer who is keen to stop people being able to copy/download photos from his site.
I have been unable to find anything that refers to this at this stage.
Any suggestions on how we might be able to do this.

Its impossible to "STOP" copying/downloading images from a website, but there are many things you can do to make it harder.
Use CSS and place the images as "background-url" (CSS)
Password protect, or place a blank index.html page in the images folder
Hope these helped a little.
(this will stop people from using the images on THEIR website.)
You need to have hotlink protection.
Here is a good result I found from google:

You have pretty much confirmed what I already was sure was the case. I have seen a few references to placing a watermark on images displayed.
Is there a way of doing this "automatically" or is it better to doctor all the images placing a watermark on each image prior to uploading?

If your not familiar with a scripting language, I would suggest doing this manually (or batch it), before upload.

Came to that conclusion myself. I have decided to watermark each of the pics manually with photoshop. Sigh
bit of a job but probably the best solution for a difficult problem.

If you have PHP GD2 I think theres quite a few methods you could use to make it a bit more dynamic for instance - http://ditio.net/2007/07/11/creating-watermarks-with-php-and-gd-library/

Regarding watermarking, I've got that code done , but I can't figure out how to go about integrating it with Silverstripe.
Willr ; would you mind giving me some pointers on how to "hook" this in ?
See http://www.silverstripe.com/site-builders-forum/flat/1144 for my question.

Dumb question, but what is GD?
I have had a look at the link you listed but I still don't know whether I have GD as part of Silverstripe or whether it is an extra download and install.
Cna you please let me know what GD stands for
