"Watermarking relational data is an important topic in the field of copyright protection, given the increasing prevalence of piracy and illegal duplication of databases. While there exists solutions for watermarking relational data, the problems that arise due to multiple ownership (two or more) of databases have not been acknowledged. This research focuses on developing a novel watermarking scheme to counter the problems. The watermarking scheme proposed necessitates the owners of the database in consideration to come together to perform the watermarking process. The scheme can be applied to insert watermarks in both numerical and categorical data. The watermarking scheme is tested by conducting experiments for validation and efficiency by watermarking test databases varying different factors that affect the watermarking scheme"--Abstract, page iii.
