You could use a material overlay. Check out this tutorial:

It is easier to just do it in post though using iMovie, premiere, windows movie maker, Vegas, or the like.

Or don't do it at all.
No one's gonna want to see that.

This is the problem you would have if you added a watermark infront of the camera.

As you animate the camera you would have to have a fully animatable and scalable watermark. As you adjust the shutter speed (aperature), Focal Distance and Field of view to the scene, you would have to animate and rescale the watermark to keep it in focus.

This is a model of my watermark place infront of the camera. It's root transform is locked to the transform of the camera and the watermark is in focus. Watch what happens to the watermark as the camera moves and focuses on something else.

This is why you either have to use a material overlay or add a watermark using 3rd party software in a post production environment.
