Copy Protection and DRM News
ArtistScope introduced copy protection to the Internet in 1998. Most developments in DRM
since then were created here.
That is so true, especially when considering that none of the copy-cat protectors exist any more. Every time ArtistScope released a new solution, monkey-brains would float a new startup on the stock exchange to bleed naive investors. Sure, copy protection is big business. But the "big" part of it is about how many billions are lost to plagiarism and piracy and not what the "copy protection" industry can earn.
Copy protection is difficult to enforce because it can be breached from many directions. It also not popular because it can be considered as being "intrusive and unfriendly". But the public needs to get real. They do not have the right to copy and plagiarize and to view copy protected content one must realize that it is a privilege given by the content author and that in doing so you abide by that author's rules. Otherwise go away and chew on a car tyre.
ArtistScope software is innovative and the industry standard for copy protection, providing the most secure and most robust copy protection options possible. It is the solution of choice by the military, government, telecoms and many other industries worldwide where the protection of intellectual property and sensitive information is critical.
Too many people assume that copy protection
solutions can work without changing the file
format and requiring a special reader.
Similarly, they expect their copy protected
web pages to be viewable in all web browsers
and on all operating systems.
Well none of those ideas are feasible. To begin the file being protected cannot be viewable in a generic reader if it is to remain secure. For example any PDF viewable in Adobe Reader cannot be protected. But that same PDF encrypted for use in the CopySafe PDF Reader becomes the most securely protected document on the planet.
And so it is with popular web browsers. Over the years they have developed and provided more and more ways of exploiting and copying web media. Their browsers have never provided consistent support for plugins or anything else useful for webmasters to identify users or restrict access. Late 2015 those popular browsers did webmasters a huge favor by dropping support for real plugins altogether. Now webmasters have simpler task and use the ArtistScope web browser in full confidence that it will provide consistent no-nonsense support for their copy protected project.
