It looks to me as if you have a customised version of RRDTool installed.
Normally, you would see a faint vertical text there "RRDtool /Tobi Oetiker"
and not what you are seeing.  That watermarking is not customisable without
modifying the RRDTool binary, so it seems you have a modified binary.

The '--watermark' option adds a similar marking to the bottom of the graph
but does not modify the righthand side watermark.  In fact, I suspect Tobi
might get a little irritated that someone has stripped out this
acknowledgement from the code, though I don't think it is a requirement that
it be there...

I suspect that if you investigate which RRDTool you are using you will find
it is a customised install for your site; so in this case you would need to
either revert to the standard version or change the customisation.
