Copy protect images and web pages from all copy

Copy Protect Web Module for Drupal


Drupal moduleThis module enables the insertion of CopySafe Web images into Drupal posts and pages from the Drupal page editor. Without this module adding HTML to activate a browser plugin would be an arduous task, even for experienced web developers. But that task has been greatly simplified.

By simply adding a CopySafe Web encrypted image, copy protection can be applied to the web page and all of its media including video (but not PDF*), protecting them from all copy, PrintScreen and screen capture. Your protection settings can be modified at any time by simply editing the shortcode in HTML view.

  • Copy protect images displayed on web pages.
  • Safe from PrintScreen and all screen capture.
  • Images cannot be retrieved from browser cache.
  • Domain-locked images cannot be displayed elsewhere.
  • Images stored on the server are safe from webmasters.
  • Encrypted images cannot be saved or scraped.

How this Drupal Module Works


When editing a page or post, you may insert the short code by clicking on the [C] icon above the HTML editor toolbar where the cursor was last placed in the text area. After uploading or selecting an existing image class file (from a previous upload), you can then nominate the security settings to use for the page or post. Different pages can use different security and display settings:

 Width  Width in pixels of the image area
 Height   Height in pixels of the image area
 Border Frame Add a border to the image nominating frame thickness and color 
 Hyperlink Add a clickable link to the image and nominate target frame 
 CaptureSafe  Enable protection from Print Screen and screen capture 
 KeySafe Disable use of web browser menus (browser-dependent) 
 RemoteSafe Prevent access to computers using remote or virtual connection


Default Settings for this Drupal Module


Default settings can be applied to all CopySafe Web pages and posts. Most useful for corporate networks and others who need to limit access to certain types of web browsers, the default settings page allows you to nominate which ones you want to allow. Any browsers not qualifying will be redirected. You can also select from 3 modes, which can be changed at any time:

 Demo Mode  Allows use of the Module without requiring a CopySafe Web license
 Licensed  For users with the CopySafe Web software for encrypting images
 Debug Mode  Displays the HTML for object tag instead of displaying the image


CopySafe Web Licensing


While this CMS add-on is free, the encrypted images to upload need to be created by the CopySafe Web software.

CopySafe Web Version Detection


When CopySafe Web is used on a web page, if a visitor does not have the CopySafe plugin installed, they are redirected for download and install instructions. This module includes everything needed for this task including download and error pages.
