It is feared that the ease with which digital media can be copied will lead to a proliferation of copyright infringement. One proposed technical solution is digital watermarking, which embeds a hidden signal into host data that can be used in a variety of protocols that attempt to either prevent or deter copyright infringement. In this paper, we give a brief overview of digital watermarking and discuss some of the issues involved in providing effective digital watermarking systems for deterring copyright infringement.
