How copy protection works for web pages

How the copy protection works

Images displayed in our security applet are encrypted and domain locked to the licensed web site. Those images cannot be viewed from cache (temporary internet files) and can only be viewed from your licensed web site.

The CopySafe Web security applet also interacts with the CopySafe Web plugin which manages the functions that can be used while a CopySafe Web protected page is active.

While the protected page is active, the CopySafe plugin is active. When the protected page is closed, the plugin becomes inactive. Collapsing a protected page window will not de-activate the plugin... the protected page must be closed (exited). Similarly, navigating back and forth from a normal page (home page or site menu) to a protected page will activate/de-activate the plugin accordingly.

If any browser window displays a CopySafe Web protected page (whether collapsed or not), the CopySafe Web plugin will be active for all browser windows pertaining to that web browser family. To exit CopySafe Web control, all windows displaying a CopySafe Web protected page must be closed.

Setting the level of copy protection

You have complete control over the level of protection that can be set on each page.

Further to the controls set by your inserts and templates, html, JavaScript and other scripting languages such as ASP and PHP can be used to include/not include many functions for restricting non-JavaScript browsers, nominating which platforms and which browser types can access your pages, language and IP number, search engines, caching and print control.

Content that can be copy protected

With care virtually anything that can be displayed in a web browser can be copy protected when using CopySafe Web.
