Having scale (scalebar) and distance (via grid) is handy when panning
around in the map view, taking application screenshots, screencasts,
exporting the canvas as an image etc. These features are disabled by
default so they should not cause you any interference if you don't
want to use them. The copyright decoration functionality could
probably be replaced by current map annotations implementation I
