About the Wallpapers
Some sites will include a watermark on the bottom edge of the wallpaper while others do not. Obviously, you should leave the watermark on, even if you just intend to use it as a wallpaper, as it gives credit to the source from which you accessed the image. Note that many of the screenshots are user-uploaded to the website.
