A wavelet-based copyright-proving scheme that does not require the original image for logo verification is proposed in this paper. The scheme is strong enough to resist malicious manipulations of an image including blurring, JPEG compression, noising, sharpening, scaling, rotation, cropping, scaling-cropping, and print-photocopy-scan attacks. The proposed scheme is also resistant to StirMark and unZign attacks and it is not only a robust method but also a lossless one. Experiments are conducted to show the robustness of this method. Moreover, cryptographic tools, such as digital signature and timestamp, are introduced to make copyright proving publicly verifiable.
