Digital copyright protection has attracted a great spectrum of studies. One of the optimistic techniques is digital watermarking. Many digital watermarking algorithms were proposed in recent literature. One of the highly addressed issues within the watermarking literature is robustness against attacks. Considering this major issue, we propose a new robust image watermarking scheme. The proposed watermarking scheme achieves robustness by watermarking several images simultaneously. It firstly splits the watermark (which is a binary logo) into multiple pieces and then embeds each piece in a separate image, hence, this technique is termed 'Multiple Images Watermarking'. The binary logo is generated by extracting unique features from all the images which have to be watermarked. This watermark is first permuted and then embedded using SILE algorithm . Permutation is important step to uniformly distribute the unique characteristics acquired from multiple logos. The proposed watermarking scheme is robust against a variety of attacks including Gamma Correction, JPEG, JPEG2000, Blur, Median, Histogram Equalization, Contrast, Salt and Pepper, Resize, Crop, Rotation 90, Rotation 180, Projective, Row Column Blanking and Row Column Copying and Counterfeit attack.
