Paper Abstract

Digital watermarking has been recently proposed as the mean for property right protection of digital products. In this paper we analyze the self-similarities in detail signals of discrete wavelet transform of the image for the purpose of protecting the copyright of the image. The signature embedded using this method is retrievable only by the mean of protected information. Our studies have shown that the watermarked image has a good quality of image, and such a watermark is difficult to detect and unchangeable without the appropriate user crytogram.
