How To Prevent Your Content From Being Copied? Tips For Protecting And Defending Your Online Content.
They say that the best way to protect content from being copied is to not publish it online. Because once it is online it is considered to be free to use by anyone, regardless of Copyright laws. The law says it is protected and illegal to copy while almost everyone wants everything for free.
Add protection to any online content and immediately complaints arise about restricting their access rights and privileges to copy, steal and pirate anything that they like. Disable any functions normally available in an app and some will complain about intrusion on the computer. If everyone had their way, copy protection would be illegal.
But let's get things back into the proper prospective. The owners of content like graphics, stories, videos and tutorial documents do not publish their content online for it to be freely distributed when it has cost a small fortune to create. To recoupe their investment they need to ensure that it is not freely distributed and publish their works on the condition that they are pay-to-see.
That is where PDF security software comes in to protect tutorials and other intellectual property from copy and unlawful redistribution. Today there are many different solutions available for protecting PDF documents and adding DRM to prevent sharing. Not many are any way near as secure as the CopySafe PDF Protection software and none can protect PDF displayed on web pages like CopySafe PDF does.
Protecting online content has never been easy. In the beginning when ArtistScope began researching ways to protect the artist's livelihood, every developer including the guys at Netscape, said that it was impossible. But we persisted and researched and researched until we finally developed image encryption for the Internet. The following tear we filled the hole that PrintScreen and screen capture software exposed. Unfortunately web site owners wanted visitors to be able to use their favourite web browser so we tried to cater for all web browsers. We did manage to support all web browsers but the security could be considered to be like quicksand because with so many different web browsers and the constant changes made to each as they evolved, methods for protecting content had to be continually revised.
Catering for the quirks of popular web browsers that were always designed to exploit media was never ideal for protecting web content. And now that all of those web browsers have stepped back from supporting real plugins that can interact at system level, they are useless for copy protection projects. But that is a huge plus for those who want to copy protect web content because now there can be no compromise that can undermine security. Now the ArtisBrowser is the only web browser that can be used with website copy protection software, and now web content protection can be very much more secure than ever before.
Especially designed for use with the ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS), the ArtisBrowser provides the most secure read-only solution for web pages ever imagined. While ASPS web pages are displayed in the ArtisBrowser, the visitor can explore them like any other page, but he cannot download, save or copy them in any way.
No other website copy protection software can compare to ASPS which creates an encrypted tunnel between server and browser in which all copy is prevented and nothing can be extracted from page source, browser cache or memory, making anything that is displayed on an ASPS protected web page most secure.
ASPS is the best website copy protection software but there is a catch in that a dedicated or virtual server is required for the rights to install software at server level. Otherwise, websites hosted on shared hosting servers can use of the CopySafe solutions which will run on any web page hosted on any type of server.
For website copy protection software that can be used on shared hosting servers, to copy protect images and web pages you can use the CopySafe Web Protection software. For PDF security software that can be used on your website you can use the CopySafe PDF Protection software and for video you can use the CopySafe Video Protection software. All of the CopySafe solutions encrypt their media with domain lock so that should anyone download the media, they cannot view it because it will only display on your website.
