When looking to protect your digital information any protection system or service that you consider should have a few basic security bases covered.

For software and executables:

1. When openingrepparttar 108355 file, a protection system must not save or copy an unprotected version ofrepparttar 108356 file torepparttar 108357 windows TEMP directory or anywhere on your PC for that matter.

2. The system should automatically prevent password sharing and access by unauthorized parties. This will preventrepparttar 108358 document from being passed around or distributed illegally since it can't be opened unless you are authorized.

3. It should have some method to revoke or cancel access for refunded or fraudulent users.

Any PDF protection system must coverrepparttar 108360 three bases above, as well as:

Is $300 a year too much to protect your copyrights? Definitely not. Protection costs money, but if your business is making money then it's a cost of doing business.

Is it for you? I don't know. Selling a few low priced applications a month probably won't warrant any sort of protection, but if you generate a substantial income from your software orrepparttar 108365 information distributed is of a critical nature to your business, then you need to protect your intellectual "capital" at some level.


Personally, I believe that some level of protection should be implemented on any piece of software or document that is of any value to you. You should never mass distribute a file in an unprotected format. Otherwise you will be scrambling when you find someone misusing it... if you find them!

It's easy to listen to those that say "don't worry about it" (a common reply torepparttar 108366 document protection topic) until someone is actually stealing from you. Then all you can do is worry about it, but it's too late really. The damage is done. You can't take something back once it's out there unprotected. No amount of legal threatening is going to phase someone in Prague who just doesn't care about your copyrights.
