Abstract— Most of the Buyer Seller Watermarking (BSW) Protocol found in literature utilize dual watermarking system for copy protection, copyright protection, and piracy tracking purpose. The proposed state-of-art presents a dual watermarking mechanism in which two separate watermark is inserted. The proposed work embeds a visible watermark in spatial domain and another invisible watermark in transform domain. Visible watermark is widely used for copy protection but are susceptible to image inpainting and common signal processing attacks. By embedding invisible watermark with visible watermark the dual watermark content can resist these attacks. The proposed mechanism allows a legal customer to remove the visible watermark only, then also invisible watermark protects the copyright and helps in piracy tracking problem. The higher experimental value of SSIM shows the visual fidelity of original image is well protected in proposed scheme.
