The problem with protecting documents, especially eBooks where
authors are too eager to please everyone regardless of their
preferred eBook reader, is that it's not possible to properly
protect any document or file when its associated reader has not
been designed for copy protection and DRM control, or it has, but
by its structure can easily be dissembled and exploited.
And that's the way it is with every document reader available today except for the CopySafe PDF Reader. When one looks at all of the available e-reader solutions, one sees a variety of concepts:
Why this is so is because those reading solutions were only ever
designed to be simple. But now that they have become popular,
authors are asking for a means to protect their livelihoods
while still distributing their content in packages that are for all
intents and purposes, not much more than paper bags.
Most of those solutions, being basically plain text, can be exploited far too easily for anyone to consider their protection worthwhile at all. Their DRM is easily removed and none utilize any real form of copy protection that can prevent someone from copying and printing every page.
All documents, regardless of file type type such as DOC, XML,
TXT, etc can be easily converted to PDF. Then from PDF they can
be easily copy protected by converting them to
CopySafe PDF which can
distributed by email, download or on desk for desktop reading or
encrypted with domain lock for web page display.
CopySafe PDF is
specially designed for not only providing copy protection of a
document's content while being displayed, but it can also employ DRM controls
to prevent sharing and unauthorized distribution. The copy
protection provided by CopySafe PDF is the most secure and there
is no other application that can provide such complete
protection from PrintScreen and all screen capture software.
The same applies to the digital rights management (DRM) applied by CopySafe PDF which was specially designed as a more secure alternative to the monkey business evident in alternative solutions.
eBooks online, authors need to preserve their livelihood by
ensuring that their publications and/or tutorials continue to
bring in revenue. Delivering eBooks that are not copy
protected or protected from unauthorized distribution is one
sure way to reduce sales because anyone already with a copy of
your eBook is free to forward it onto an unlimited number of
persons, or even sell it as their own.
However by using CopySafe PDF you not only have the most secure copy protection for your eBook content but you also have the opportunity to restrict the use of your eBooks to only those people who pay for them.
