Thank you I tried that and it didn't work, copyright only and the caption still appeared.  Looked at the pictures the caption might have come from don't see it.    Frustrating

Does the caption say "OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA"? If not, what does it say exactly?

Can you share one of these photo files on a file sharing service like Dropbox (or similar) and then provide us with the link? If there is a sidecar .xmp file, share that too.

To add to dj_paige's request, before uploading the photo, select it in LR and do the menu command Metadata > Save Metadata To File. That will write all the catalog metadata into the file or its .xmp sidecar.

Thank you all for your help   I ended up contacting LRC tech support.  The caption was a watermark that wasnt showing up under watermarks?!  Support  found it and cleared it up for me.  I appreciate the help

Glad you got it resolved. You're lucky that Adobe support helped you -- they usually refuse to help those with older versions of LR.

I had updated to the new Adobe cloud and all the old Lightroom stuff pre-populated into the new LRC   They were very helpful at the support team
