Adevarul, Romania's premier integrated multimedia business publishing magazines such as OK!, Forbes, etc. chooses LockLizard Safeguard Enterprise PDF DRM to secure ebooks in their new ebook shop.
Adevarul had been looking to provide digital products and take a leading position in the rapidly developing ebook marketplace, but concerns over piracy and associated loss of revenue had prevented them from pursuing this avenue further. Enter LockLizard with their PDF DRM software - a DRM solution for secure ebooks in PDF format. LockLizard PDF DRM has been used globally since 2004 to protect intellectual property, documents and ebooks against piracy and misuse. It is the number one PDF DRM software company in the world, helping Adevarul to take a leading position in the growing global ebook marketplace.
Adevarul chose LockLizard PDF DRM over Adobe Content Server on price, the ability to implement very quickly (the DRM service was up and running immediately without any additional server installation), and the flexibility of the comprehensive security controls that it offers.
Safeguard Enterprise PDF DRM protects Adevarul’s ebooks from copying, modifying, saving, and unauthorized distribution. It also prevents screen grabbing, controls whether printing is allowed or not (and if so, how many copies can be made) and enables use to be revoked if chargebacks are made. Additional DRM controls will enforce expiry periods if applicable. Secure dynamic document watermarking, which can contain user information (name, company, email, etc.), can be applied to printed copies to discourage photocopying, and to viewed content to discourage taking photographs.
Adevarul have high hopes for the future. They are now making securely available their content in digital format, delivering a complete range of print and digital offerings to their customers.
