Digital Watermark Law and Legal Definition

Digital watermarking is the process of embedding information in a digital manner that is difficult to remove. It will be in the form of a signal that can be audio, video or pictures. When the signal is copied the information is also copied. A visible watermarking is a logo or identification of the owner of a product. In invisible watermarking, information is added as digital data to audio, picture or video, but it cannot be perceived as such. Digital watermarks are mostly used in copyright protection systems. This can be used to decrease illegal copies of copyright products.
