Digimarc to Demo, Discuss Copyright and Digital Asset Protection Solutions at The Frankfurt Book Fair

Digimarc® Guardian Uses Watermarks and Web Crawling Technology to Protect Revenue and Content Owners' Rights

BEAVERTON, OR and FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2015) - Frankfurt Book Fair, Hall 6.2, Stand C40 -- Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) today announced a demonstration of Digimarc® Guardian Watermarking for Publishing at The Frankfurt Book Fair being held October 14-18 in Frankfurt, Germany. The company will also discuss the best ways to protect digital assets across the web without the use of DRM during their session titled "Protecting Your Digital Assets; Digimarc Guardian Helps to Ensure Copyright Protection." Session attendees will learn how to implement a successful content-protection strategy into their business using the Digimarc Guardian solution.

Demos are available in Hall 6.2 Stand C40. The company's session "Protecting Your Digital Assets; Digimarc Guardian Helps to Ensure Copyright Protection" is being held October 15, 9:00 AM CEST at the Hot Spot for Digital Innovation Stage, Hall 6.2.

Digimarc Guardian Watermarking embeds unique, imperceptible and traceable digital watermarks into e-books, enabling distributors and publishers to track where their content is appearing online and identify sources of leakage. HarperCollins Publishers uses Digimarc Guardian Watermarking to protect its U.S. e-book catalog, distributed globally. In Germany, Hanseatische Gesellschaft für Verlagsservice mbH (HGV) uses Digimarc Guardian Watermarking to protect e-books published by members of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group.

The cloud-based Digimarc Guardian platform offers easy-to-integrate API support for most e-book formats, including EPUB, PDF and MOBI. For each transaction, the platform generates a unique, traceable digital watermark and embeds it throughout the e-book. It's extremely difficult for pirates to locate and remove these imperceptible digital identifiers.

Digimarc's anti-piracy service then crawls the web 24x7 searching for watermarked content. When a watermark is detected, Digimarc provides the unique identifier to the publisher to match against its own transaction records. By stopping and identifying leaks in their digital supply chain that result in piracy, publishers can ensure authors are being properly compensated for their work.
