How to Protect Your Ebooks and Software from Being Stolen!

Written by Anthony Ellis

There are many systems that can lock your software or document, allowing you to control access to that file. Butrepparttar problem arises with assuming that this will stop all theft? A well thought out, thorough protection system can deter theft, but it cannot stop it 100%.

An "unbreakable" protection system simply does not, and will never exist. If someone really wants your information, they can get it, even if it takes years of work.


There is no 100% security guarantee in anything, but that's no reason to totally ignore protecting your intellectual property -- A thief can easily kick in your front door and rob your house, but you still lockrepparttar 108351 door right? Lockingrepparttar 108352 door is not 100% effective security, but we still do it. Why? Because lockingrepparttar 108353 door deters most potential theft and those who are more determined will have to work a bit to get in.


The big question here is, HOW VALUABLE IS YOUR INFORMATION TO YOU? Sensitive, proprietary or private information demands some sort of protection, otherwise transmitting overrepparttar 108354 net is not an option.

If your information is not free, then it's obviously of some importance. So, how much damage would it do to you if it were made freely available? What type of impact would it have on your sales and could you (or would you) absorb that without thinking twice?

Is a $14 Ebook worth paying for another service to protect it? Probably not, but it depends onrepparttar 108355 situation and target market. What about a $2,000 report? Doesrepparttar 108356 price changerepparttar 108357 perspective?

Business protect their property. If you believe your information or software to be of a unique or proprietary nature, you should protect that information using some means, no matter how small.

Companies like Microsoft lose hundreds of millions of dollars due to software theft and fraud, yet they continue to implement protection measures in their software. I would guess that without any protection whatsoeverrepparttar 108358 losses would be inrepparttar 108359 billions.


Like I said, there is no 100% way to prevent every possible incident, but you can make it very difficult and less likely to happen. At best what you should hope is to provide just enough security to close obvious security flaws and discourage would-be thieves. But not so much security that it discourages honest users and customers.


Here are some common protection schemes:

No Protection: Just distribute your information and hope forrepparttar 108360 best.
