CopySafe PDF for Drupal

Drupal moduleThis module enables the insertion CopySafe PDF documents into Drupal posts and pages from the Drupal page editor.

  • Copy protect eBooks and PDF documents displayed online.
  • Safe from PrintScreen and all screen capture software.
  • Documents cannot be retrieved from browser cache.
  • Domain-locked documents cannot be displayed elsewhere.
  • Documents stored on the server are safe from webmasters.
  • Encrypted documents cannot be saved or scraped.

How the Drupal Module Works

When editing a page or post, you may insert the short code by clicking on the [PDF] icon above the HTML editor toolbar where the cursor was last placed in the text area. After uploading or selecting an existing PDF class file (from a previous upload), you can then nominate the security settings to use for the page or post. Different pages can use different security and display settings:

 Width  Width in pixels of the PDF viewing area
 Height   Height in pixels of the PDF viewing area
 Print Count   Enable printing and/or limit number of prints 
 Print Anywhere   Restrict printing to virtual or hard-wired printers 
 Allow Capture  Enable protection from PrintScreen and capture
 Allow Remote  Prevent computers using remote or virtual access
 Language   Set the language used in toolbar messages
 Background   Set color in the unused area of viewer window 

Default Settings for this Drupal Module

Default settings can be applied to all CopySafe PDF pages and posts. Most useful for corporate networks and others who need to limit access to certain types of web browsers, the default settings page allows you to nominate which ones you want to allow. Any browsers not qualifying will be redirected. You can also select from 3 modes, which can be changed at any time:

 Demo Mode  Allows use of the Module without requiring a CopySafe PDF license
 Licensed  For users with the CopySafe PDF software for encrypting images
 Debug Mode  Displays the HTML for object tag instead of displaying the image

CopySafe PDF Licensing

The CopySafe PDF Protector enables the encryption of PDF documents for distribution by email, download and disk with copy protection options and the ability to assign DRM control. It can also convert protected PDF for display online, from a web page, using the web browser plugin included with the CopySafe PDF Reader. Such documents encrypted for online use do not need to be domain locked. However, domain locking is most recommended to prevent their display on other websites.

Every CopySafe PDF Protector license provides for unlimited use and includes free DRM hosting to manage subscribers. But it does not include licensing for online display using Domain Lock. If the Protector is unlicensed documents distributed for local viewing will include a watermark and documents displayed online with a Domain Lock will not be secure. ArtistScope oversees the use of domain lock in CopySafe PDF by requiring the registration of each separate site (fee applies).

Otherwise, the free trial version of CopySafe PDF Protector can be downloaded for evaluation to create encrypted PDF documents to upload for testing with this Drupal Module.

CopySafe PDF Version Detection

When CopySafe PDF is used on a web page, if a visitor does not have the reader module installed, they are redirected for download and install instructions. This Drupal Module includes everything needed for this task including download and error pages.
