Protecting Images with Watermarks

Digital watermarks are designed to protect your intellectual property. When you embed a digital watermark, it actually inserts the watermark information as visible noise into the image. This means that someone can copy your image, scan it, and the watermark is still part of the image. To embed a digital watermark, you must first register with Digimarc Corporation; which maintains a database of artists, designers, and photographers and their contact information. You can then embed the Digimarc ID in your images, along with information such as the copyright year or a restricted-use identifier.
