Watermarks are mostly used by organizations and photographers in order to protect their photos. If someone wants to use their photo they will have to first get a permission from the original author or pay a small amount for its usage.
On the other hand, Google’s developers revealed just how easy it is to remove a watermark from a photo.
The revelation took place last week at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference where they introduced the public with an algorithm that easily removes watermarks form photos. The concept idea behind the entire project was to show just how easy can someone use your photo even if you apply watermarks.
With the release of the new algorithm, Google is encouraging organizations and photographers to invent modern advanced system to protect their copyrights.
