How to remove a watermark from a PDF file? Can I use PDF Text Replacer Command Line or VeryPDF PDF Editor to remove the watermarks from a PDF file?

I am trying to remove the watermark. its gives the error.log . And its not removing the water mark.

pdfstamp -PDF "inputpdf_filepath" -o "outputpdf_filepath" -SU

Error.log contains
input file: Input File Path
output file: output File path
Error: parameter error.

I need to be able to remove a watermark from existing PDFs we have stored in a database. This is a legitimate requirement (rather than trying to remove trial software watermarks) as we have > 10 million PDFs stored with a "copy" watermark that we now want to store without the watermark. I can remove them with Acrobat, but I haven't been able to find a product which can do this programmatically. Can VeryPDF software do this?

I thought this would be a simple task, but it turned out the other way.

The watermark is the very same (overlapping, but transparent) image on every single page. I created the PDF file myself (so no copyright worries here) using PDF Printer software.

I have already tried my friend's Adobe Acrobat Pro, but it didn't work. It tries to remove it, but it can't. I tried to remove header/footer, etc., but the watermark just won't disappear.

Commercial PDF files are often attached with logo, signature, banner, stamp or link in form of standard Adobe watermarks, and frequently these watermarks are added with either some texts or a background image so as to restrain from copying and help users to identify the source of printed document, or determine whether a document has been altered or not.

If you really want to do it, there're some solutions recommended.
