Digital Rights Management (DRM) for eBooks and PDF documents

How To Create, Promote & Sell Protected eBooks

Selling books online is precarious business when considering how easily your effort can be exploited. For example, most think that the best plan is to maximize sales potential by selling through the "big" online outlets. Unfortunately those outlets prefer cheap publications and offer no protection from unauthorized distribution. Also, it may not be easy to find your book in their listings and at best a search may yield hundreds of closely related titles before getting to yours.

Sell Protected Books & Protect Your Livelihood

Some online book merchants talk about "protection" but it only refers to withholding delivery/download until the book is paid for. Unfortunately this is not protection from copy or unauthorized distribution as the user can copy its contents and also forward that book onto anyone else who in turn can also copy and redistribute. At the end of the day one will be able to search online and find your book for free so the only alternative, if you want to preserve your livelihood and the effort that went into publishing your book, is to properly protect your book so that it cannot be copied or forwarded.

If your book is worthless and you are content in getting anything for it, then by all means sell through the big outlets. But if your book is more expensive and intended to be "exclusive" then you should consider proper book protection.

ArtistScope DRM provides the most secure protection and is used by these services:
