Segmented watermarking is an approach to multiple watermarking that can be used to acknowledge the contribution of multiple authors or to embed a fingerprint code-word, but is susceptible to cropping attacks that discard portions of the watermarked media. Careful selection of the watermark embedding pattern can increase the resilence of a segmented watermark in the presence of cropping attacks. In this paper, we consider performance measures for embedding patterns and compare the performance of several proposed embedding patterns using these measures.
