Watermark could prevent plastic piracy

Researchers at WMG at the University of Warwick have devised a high tech watermark that can be added to plastic products as they are created to prevent counterfeiting.

As the watermark is created as an intrinsic part of the plastic as it is moulded, it would require very detailed technical knowledge and equipment to replicate it.

Professor Gordon Smith from WMG said the new technology could be of significant interest to a range of manufacturers to prevent piracy in products like DVD s and plastic containers used by a range of consumer industries.
