With the growing use of online digital media, it is becoming increasingly challenging to protect copyright and intellectual property. Data hiding techniques like digital watermarking can be used to embed data within a signal for purposes such as digital rights management. This paper investigates a watermarking technique for digital images using QR codes. The advantage of using QR codes for watermarking is that properties of the QR code structure include error correction and high data capacity. This paper proposes a QR code watermarking technique, and examines its robustness and security against common digital image attacks.
