EBook Security: What is it, and how does it work?

ebook security how does it

Many people think that there is no security for PDF files. But fortunately, we are at a time when we can secure our eBooks effectively. In fact, if you have an eBook, you should secure it with at least a dynamic watermark to prevent theft.

Ebook security is the process of applying copy protection to eBooks or digital books to prevent unwanted sharing and distribution among users.

It uses various security technologies like access controls, encryption, and watermarking. It is often carried out with the use of patented file formats.

The following are the eBook security options you can choose to secure your PDF eBook:

· Stop Printing- You can prevent, allow, or control the number of times your eBook gets printed.

· EBook expiration date- By choosing this, you can set an expiration date for your eBook or let it expire after reaching your set number of prints or views.

· Dynamic watermarks- Adding dynamic watermarks on the printed or viewed pages discourages sharing.

· Prevent downloading- If you want your eBook users to read your content online but prevent downloading the eBook, you can enable this option.

· Encryption- You can place AES256 encryption to your PDF files if you don’t want unauthorized sharing and distribution of your files.

But after years of observation from all our data, we found that using those complicated measures to prevent piracy just made them worse. Your readers are actually just want to copy and paste to their own other devices. They usually have no intention to copy and upload it to the internet. They're annoyed by the fact that they purchased it but can't read it on any device they owned. Thus they search for a way to crack the DRM and boooom your ebook is now unprotected.

The best way to make them (remember, they are your "customers") happy is just to use dynamic watermarking. Watermark their name, email, etc. and that's it. They can copy to any devices they want to read on. They know and understand precisely why there's their name on it. They just want to read freely and may be sent to a few of their best friends (like giving the actual books). Don't worry, because their best friends can see the name on it too and they won't do anything stupid like posting on torrent sites and have their friend's big problem.

Control and curb eBook sharing, copying, and distribution

prevent ebook sharing

An ebook is a digital version of a hard-printed book that is precisely designed to be read on a mobile device or desktop computer.

It is much easier to copy, share, and distribute an eBook than a printed book. Creating a decent copy of a physical book is difficult. Plus, it is notably cheaper to buy the original book than to take the trouble of getting a photocopy that you know is going to be an agony to read.

With eBooks, it is completely different. It is designed in such as way that the reader can read it comfortably on a screen. Duplicating an eBook for distribution is an entirely different thing than photocopying a physical book.

Therefore, if you have an eBook, you should use a dynamic watermark so that your content is effectively protected.
