CopySafe PDF Protector can encrypt and protect PDF for
copy protection and it can
also be used in with copy protection plus (+) DRM to ensure that the documents
cannot be redistributed to unauthorized users. If by now you find the difference
between "copy protection" and "preventing sharing" confusing, there is no reason
for concern because with CopySafe PDF Protector you have both options at your

With every license for CopySafe PDF Protector, we include a free author account
in our DRM Portal so that you can manage your documents and subscribers. Your
DRM usage privileges are free and without limitation, ie: you can add as many
documents and users as you like. You can also create as many user-groups as you
need and you have full statistical reports available for tracking your document
and subscriber usage. Click for more information on the
many DRM options available.
For companies who wish to keep this service in-house, the DRM Portal software can

By using DRM to control access rights and permissions to your PDF documents,
you can prevent forwarding and unauthorized distribution. In fact, using
ArtistScope DRM on PDF is the only effective way you can stop file and document
copy for use by persons other than the intended user.
EEven if 100 copies were distributed to other persons, unless those recipients also have your explicit permissions and right to open the file or document, they will not be able to use it and the whole process of pirating and unlawful forwarding will be stopped most effectively. The file itself can be duplicated and the recipient can copy it to their computer but they will not be able to open it.
Creating Your Own DRM Website for PDF
When using CopySafe PDF for display from web pages, you can employ your own DRM
rules quite easily by simply adding some code to your existing Content
Management System (CMS) whether it be WordPress, Joomla etc. When using CopySafe
PDF all it takes to create a basic DRM web solution is the addition of a few
lines of code to the template/insert that is used for login control plus the
creation of a couple new table rows in your database.
Protecting PDF with DRM file lock
When using the CopySafe PDF Protector, instead of encrypting the document with
the usual embedded settings for
password, etc., selecting the DRM option tags that PDF document for DRM and the site that manages the access rights are embedded into the document. Such PDF documents will remain locked until the user validates the computerís identity and verifies permissions to open the file.
What is required to manage DRM and file locking
With CopySafe PDF Protector, you have all the tools that you need to distribute
copy protected documents, safe from all save and copy, including Print Screen and
screen capture. No other PDF protect solution can do that. However, to go one
step further and stop file copy and forwarding, you need to lock your documents
using DRM as described above. Software alone cannot perform the task of DRM
management as the only way for it to remain secure is for the control to be
away from the user's computer and also away from mischief.
ArtistScope DRM can provide everything that is needed for total control of your
documents and it is available for free to all licensed users of CopySafe PDF
software. ArtistScope maintain servers in USA and Australia as DRM Portals where
authors can register their documents by uploading to them the server. Once a DRM
document is in the system, an author has total control over who can open the
file, how many times they can open the file and how many times they can print
it as well.

Use a Hosted DRM Service provided by ArtistScope (3 locations)
Authors who are just starting out with a limited budget or even those organizations
that are in need of
short-term document protection can use a fully-managed DRM service running on
one of ArtistScope's servers. No software is required as it is all provided
server-side to process documents that you upload on the web. No licenses are
required and there is no contract to sign, since you only pay rent for the time
that you want to use it.
The rental options are payment by month or you may also purchase a number of "hits"
which is how many times your users open their documents. High usage accounts
will benefit from monthly fees for unlimited usage, while low usage ones can
get long-term usage for very little. All new accounts are charged a set-up fee.
Hosted DRM Service pricing (includes all software server-side).
Purchase the DRM Service for your web site
Everything that ArtistScope uses in their Hosted DRM Service, including the
CopySafe PDF Protector installed and running server-side, the DLL interface to
enable web control and the web portal system for your website can be purchased
for installation on your own server. This option requires a Windows server or
least a virtual hosting service where you have administrator rights to install software.
ArtistScope DRM can be installed to any Windows computer that supports IIS
Manager, Active Server Pages (ASP) and either Access or MS-SQL databases. Click

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 Reader 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 PDF, Flash and video.
