The increased utilization of internet in sharing and distribution of digital data makes it is very difficult to maintain copyright and ownership of data. Digital watermarking offers a method for authentication and copyright protection. We propose a blind, still image, Genetic Programming (GP) based robust watermark scheme for copyright protection. In this scheme, pseudorandom sequence of real number is used as watermark. It is embedded into perceptually significant blocks of vertical and…
