Full screen and larger images are further protected by digital fingerprinting. This uses a technology developed by IBM and Datamark. Whenever an image is downloaded a visible watermark indicates to whom it was transmitted and when. The digital fingerprint uniquely identifies this image with download details. The digital fingerprint is invisible to the human eye but can be detected by a program and the resulting number can track the source of the copying. It is extremely robust and can withstand modifications such as blurring or sharpening the image, and printing out and re-scanning.
