Author Affiliations +
Digital watermarking has been recently proposed as the mean for property right protection of digital products. In this paper we analyze the self-similarities of wavelet transform and present a new approach to embed a digital watermark into an image based on the qualified significant wavelet trees (QSWT) of discrete wavelet transform of the image for the purpose of protecting the copyright of the image. 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 cryptogram.
