Why is Forensic Watermarking important?

  • Traditional content protection is still necessary but no longer enough. CA and DRM ensure that contents is delivered only to authorized users. However, CA and DRM do not prevent these users to illegally re-distributed content to millions of others.

  • Making content traceable to its source, forensic watermarking is an effective deterrent against illegal re-distribution.
