This study presented an algorithm to protect the copyright watermark by providing Hamming codes as error correcting technique. Watermark was embedded in frequency domain using discrete cosine transformation and discrete wavelet transformation, to enhance the susceptibility. Combinations of two techniques are used to target medium frequencies only. Randomness of the watermark is also created before embedding. Instead of embedding in the same place in every block, it is embedded adaptively which depends upon the row and column of that particular block. Results prove the effectiveness of the algorithm against various attacks like jpeg attack, filtering and addition of noises like Gaussian noise, salt and pepper noise and speckle noise. ECC proved to be effective to recover the watermark after certain attacks performed.
