Copy Protect Images and Web Pages
CopySafe Web provides the most secure image protection imaginable. CopySafe Web encrypted images cannot be saved, downloaded, copied or captured. Nor can the encrypted images stored on the server be used anywhere else except for display on your web pages. By adding a small encrypted to any web page all media on the web page can be copy protected from PrintScreen and screen capture.
First released in 1999 CopySafe Web provided
the most secure copy protection for web pages until the release of the
ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS) in 2014
which protects all avenues of exploit, even
from data and memory extraction. However
ASPS requires a dedicated/virtual server and
CopySafe Web can be used on any web page
anywhere, making it ideal copy protection
solution for all hosted web sites. In fact
CopySafe Web will also run from disk when
used with software like
ArtistScope Portable Media (APM).
How CopySafe Web Protection Works
A CopySafe Web encrypted image placed on a web page will activate the CopySafe Web browser DLL which interacts at system level to control the user's clipboard and memory associated with copy functions. When the user leaves the page their copy functions are restored.
CopySafe copy protection is activated by loading an encrypted image, even a small icon will do. To copy protect any web page all you need to do is add a small CopySafe Web image anywhere on the page. The CopySafe Web Converter (seen below) will import images and batches of image for encryption, saving them all to one web page or separate pages for upload to your web site. That HTML code can be copy-n-pasted to where you want the image to appear.
Or you can use one of the CMS plugins (see below) and uploaded your encrypted images and add them to your pages from the CMS page editor.
The CopySafe Web Converter can be run from the sever to automate uploads. The Converter is a Java application and should run on any computer or server. To interface the Converter with your upload pages a server DLL is available from ArtistScope. The DLL is free and all you need to do is ask.
CopySafe Copy Protection
But what has been a disaster for fake copy protection software has been a blessing for site owners that do need real copy protection, because now they cannot be swayed into relying on solutions that fail or make the mistake of allowing access to the popular web browsers that provide every means at their disposal to exploit privacy and web site protection.
Now web page protection can be very much more secure by simply allowing access to copy protected content to the ArtisBrowser only. Unlike all other web browsers, the ArtisBrowser was designed specifically for the copy protection of web pages their media and data loss prevention. ArtisBrowser includes all of the functionality of normal web browsers but switches to "protected mode" when it detects ASPS or CopySafe media.
Today there are only two (2) effective solutions for web page protection that cannot be screen captured... ASPS and CopySafe!

Distributing for Desktop Viewing
Although CopySafe Web images are usually encrypted for a web site, ie: for your domain name to apply "domain lock", they can also be used locally on the desktop when using web media created by ArtistScope Portable Media (APM). APM packages web pages and runs them in the APM Reader which functions like a mini web server running at "localhost". Each CopySafe Web licence includes your domain plus a license for "localhost" so that you can use apps like APM.

Frequent Questions and Answers
- How does CopySafe Web compare to other image protect solutions?
- Can we use the normal web browsers?
- What happens if the CopySafe plugin or ArtistScope browser is not installed?
Your protected pages will check the user's browser and if necessary redirect them to download and install before allowing access.
- Can CopySafe Web images be distributed on disk?
Yes. To distribute images and other media such as video and Flash on CD or USB, we recommend using the ArtistScope Portable Media solution.
- Does CopySafe Web increase the file size of the image?
No. Although the image is encrypted to the nth level and cannot be decrypted by any application except the CopySafe Web browser DLL, the file size of the original image does not increase.
- Can CopySafe Web pages be searched from the Internet?
Absolutely not. The content of a CopySafe Web page is protected and only accessible to users using the ArtisBrowser with the CopySafe Web DLL installed. Search engines cannot use the ArtisBrowser.
- Is CopySafe Web licensing a one-time fee or are there other costs?
Licensing for the CopySafe Web software is a one-time fee that includes free support and upgrades for life.
- What type of files can be protected by CopySafe Web?
Any type of file that can displayed on a web page can be protected from PrintScreen and screen capture. However the solution is designed for encrypting images and the file types that can be encrypted include all GIF, JPG and PNG images of good quality.
- How does CopySafe Web protect web pages?
To protect any page from PrintScreen and screen capture, simply add a small CopySafe Web encrypted image to the page. As the image loads it actions the CopySafe browser DLL and if no plugin support is found the user is redirected for download and install.
- Can web pages be protected form download, save and data mining?
Yes. But only when the ArtisBrowser is used.
- Can I use CopySafe Web in an intranet or corporate network?
Yes. The CopySafe Web software can be purchased and licensed for "localhost" or any other web name or IP address that your intranet site uses.
- Can CopySafe Web be used in CMS like Drupal and WordPress?
Yes and we do provide modules for all the popular CMS such as Drupal, Joomla, Moodle and WordPress.
- Do CopySafe Web images take longer to download?
No. However it may appear that they do because normal images start displaying before they are completely downloaded, whereas encrypted image must download first before decryption can take place. Also, normal images are usually cached so subsequent visits to the same page or pages using the same image do not need to be downloaded again.
- Can CopySafe Web images be viewed on all devices and OS such as phones?
No. Windows is required. However Mac can install the ArtisBrowser by running Windows in a Parallels partition.
- Are there plans to extend CopySafe Web support to other OS?
Not possible. All non-Windows OS are useless for real copy protection because they cannot action at system level and therefore cannot effectively prevent copy or screen capture. Authors publishing their intellectual property for such devices do so at great risk .
