CopySafe PDF is by far the most secure solution for eBooks and PDF documents.
With the most effective protection from all methods of copy and capture,

CopySafe PDF provides the most
secure document protection on the planet. When
DRM is applied you have total control over exactly who
can open your documents, how and when.
CopySafe PDF provides the most secure PDF protection with a sophisticated selection of options to cater for all usage
scenarios. In fact, when comparing CopySafe PDF to other "PDF
protection", one will wonder why they bother
mentioning "copy protection" at all when theirs is only superficial.
More Robust PDF Security
The key to the integrity of the CopySafe PDF protection is
the nature of its design. Not only are the most secure
encryption techniques employed, but all components including the reader, the
copy protector, the
document file format and the access validation processes have been specially
designed to leave nothing to exploit.
Superior PDF Protection
The CopySafe solution has provided the most secure copy protection since its
introduction in 1998. To date, no attempt to imitate it has even come
close to matching its complete control over all copy and save techniques
including Print Screen and screen capture. Other apps claiming to be capable of preventing
capture can only ever be an embarrassment because they are not preventing
capture at all. Instead, they are trying to prevent a named application from running and
all it takes is a new name, and anyone can change the name of an executable.
Protect documents by setting a password (password protection)
Perhaps the most popular document protection technique is password protection. Trafficking in password-protected documents requires trust in the recipient to not redistribute them. This kind of protection will only be effective if the password is not compromised and this can be useful in curbing unauthorized use. Today, there are many applications available on the Internet for extracting passwords from documents. However, they are useless against CopySafe PDF documents.
Protect documents by setting an expiry date (expiry
Another popular document protection technique is to set an expiry date, after which the document cannot be
opened. A simple method of exploiting this technique is by turning back the
computer's clock, and as most document expiration is based on local time (the
user's computer clock) a better technique is by using an independent time check
such as an online time server. CopySafe PDF enables the choice of using either time
server checks or local time checks (in case users in the field have no Internet
Protect documents by setting the number of days or hours (expiry
Instead of setting expiration by calendar date, you can set documents to expire
in a number of days or hours, starting from the time that the user first opens
the document. This option is most useful for distributing documents on disk,
enabling their expiration to sleep until the user first opens it, which can be
any time in the future. Both expiration by days and hours is calculated to the
minute. For example, a document with an expiry set for 3 hours, when first opened
at 1:45 pm will expire at 4:45 pm. Note that to use this feature the document
needs to be converted for DRM control (not just copy protection) and has no
effect on documents until they are closed.
or set a print limit on documents (print protection)
With CopySafe PDF you can nominate whether a user is allowed
to print your document or not. When printing is disallowed, they will never be
able to print it, and when printing is allowed, they are restricted to using real
printers only. That is, a printer physically-connected to the computer and thus
not a virtual printer like a PDF plugin to be able to re-create your original.
By using our DRM options, you have even more precise control over print
protection to be able to set limits per document and per user. For example, if
you only want each user to be able to print a particular document once, then one
visit to the printer is all they get.
Preventing forwarding and unauthorized distribution
The only way to prevent the unauthorized use of documents is by employing
document rights management (DRM) and the only way to employ DRM that cannot be
exploited is by using ArtistScope DRM. ArtistScope provides free DRM support for
all licensed users of CopySafe PDF via their servers located in Australia and
Total control over document management (super DRM)
DRM for your documents is FREE and it provides total control over all user and
document properties. Imagine finding out that a user purchased your tutorial
using a stolen credit card or bounced a check. With ArtistScope DRM, you can
suspend their access to your documents with immediate effect, even on documents
that they may have already downloaded.
CopySafe PDF Reader
The CopySafe PDF Reader
is a FREE download to the public. The reader supports most of the features commonly found in
all other PDF readers including page resizing, image zoom, auto-scrolling,
bookmarks, hyperlinks and the most effective copy protection and access rights
management options. The CopySafe PDF Reader can be redistributed with your
project as a download for your website or on disk with your documents.
The CopySafe PDF Reader is currently available in Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Filipino, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese. The language used in the software GUI can be changed at any time and is independent of the language set for the computer.
CopySafe PDF is by far more secure than all other eBook and PDF document
protection solutions because it was designed to be so. Performing a web
search on "extract password from PDF" or "remove DRM from eBooks"
can provide an insight to how
useless most document protection solutions really are. Any similarities
between the total control management of documents provided by ArtistScope DRM
and the "claims" of others are mostly inspired and pioneered by ArtistScope DRM.
CopySafe PDF is ideal for the distribution of documents
by download and on CD, but if your documents are to be
viewed from your website, then you should check
out the ASPS Web
Browser which is specially designed for copy protecting web content
instead of exposing it like other web browsers do. ASPS
provides the most secure copy protection for all web
page content including Flash and video.
