Digital Watermarking, Digital Rights Management


In this Digital Age, all forms of digital media content are available for electronic distribution. Hence there is a need to manage, store, protect and distribute digital im ages, video, and audio using schemes which can protect, detect and verify ownership. This paper presents a com plete Digital Rights Management System (DRMS) for dig ital images. One of the components in a DRMS is the information embedding technique for incorporating a dig ital watermark to protect, detect and verify ownership of digital data. This digital watermarking technique is based on Adaptive segmentation and Space-Frequency represen tation (WASSFR). Other components in this DRMS are Encryption, Channel Coding and Synchronization Mech anism. This paper attempts to build a complete digital rights management scheme (incorporating these compo nents) suitable for practical applications such as secure dig ital image distribution.
