Paper Abstract

Watermark embedding processes usually result in some degradation of the digital multimedia contents. Hence, they are not suitable for valuable and sensitive digital multimedia contents. Therefore, schemes combining signature with digital watermarking-like techniques have been proposed. Based on the general model for these combined schemes, a new scheme for image copyright protection by utilizing the pinned field of the protected image is proposed in this paper. The pinned field explores the texture information of the images and can be used to enhance the watermark robustness. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme works well under different signal-processing and geometric transformation attacks. On the other hand, in comparison with related schemes in the literature, our proposed scheme also has better performance. Furthermore, the proposed scheme is robust to both JPEG lossy compression and additive Gaussian noise.
