Beaverton, Ore. and London – April 1, 2014 –Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) today announced that Devon Weston, Manager of Client Relations for Digimarc® Guardian, the company’s leading anti-piracy platform, will be speaking at the London Book Fair, taking place April 8-10, 2014 at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre. Weston will detail how publishers can use digital watermarks to combat the high cost of e-book piracy.
E-book piracy is estimated to cost publishers around the world billions of dollars annually. In “The Impact of Digital Watermarking on Piracy” session, publishers of all sizes will learn proven strategies for finding and removing pirated content across the web to protect revenue and author rights. The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, April 9 at 4:30 PM GMT in Tech Theatre 1 of the Earls Court Exhibition Centre.
Digimarc Guardian Watermarking is an effective, user-friendly alternative to traditional Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology. It enables publishers to track and trace leaked and illicitly distributed content back to the source by identifying watermarked assets and securely delivering unique transaction IDs back to content owners for analysis. This integrated takedown process is proven to deliver high removal rates across a broad number of website types. Publishers can add Digimarc Guardian for Books to create a closed-loop anti-piracy protection solution for all their works.
