This protection covers manual copy/paste from browser selections, as well as website scraping and source code extraction via automated tools. The Demo speaks for itself and even let you experiment with your own contents.
FreedomCPROTEXT set you free of any unnecessary connection to the services it provides. Your protected contents are yours forever. Once they are generated by CPROTEXT, their integration within your websites as well as their display in a browser remain independent of any connection to our servers. You can even still modify their layout and appearence.

Developers friendlyBecause of a full compliancy with HTML and CSS web standards, your only job as a developer is to replace the original contents with the protected contents generated by CPROTEXT. Obviously, it is compatible with any modern graphical browser implementing those standards. Moreover, the original contents layouts and styles are not affected by the protection process. Protected contents are available either in a zip archive in your account area, or directly upon submission through an API for a full integration into your projects.

Frequently Asked Questions
Any information published on a public website, whether text or images, is sent within HTML code. The server hosting a website provides this code to any requesting softwares. Hence, users of these softwares can copy part or all of this code, and reproduce the content of the website on another website.
If the requesting software is a web browser, users can perform a copy of the website content by using the browser select/copy/paste features. Other requesting softwares, such as web crawlers and scraping tools, automatically scan websites: search engines, news aggregators, mirroring softwares… The copy of a specific web publication is then either intentional, or part of an automated duplication mechanism. The consequence is always a diversion of visitors traffic from the legitimate website, which may affect their authors in various ways.
Short and definitive answer: no.
Regardless of your protection sophistication, the documents have to be displayed in order for your visitors to read them. Therefore, they can be copied, whether directly (handwriting, typing), or indirectly (screen captures or printings submitted to optical character recognition). Hence, there can't be an absolute copy protection for contents published on the web. But these copying methods require time and can not be easily automated yet.
Protections preventing direct copy of the HTML code:
encryption: the text is not formatted as HTML code, but exists within encrypted data that will be decrypted by browsers using instructions embedded in the HTML code.
obfuscation: the text in not formatted as HTML code, but exists in a proprietary format that will be interpreted by browsers through specific browser plugins.
delegation: encrypted or not, obfuscated or not, the content to protect is not included in the website code, but is requested and inserted after the browser has received the HTML code.
Protections preventing content selection and copy in browsers:
styling property: a property defined in the website code informs browsers that a part of the document must not be selectable.
The protections that prevent content selection and copy in browsers rely on technical solutions that can be easily bypassed by anyone having a slight understanding of web technologies. In other words they are just a temporary annoyance for those who really want to duplicate your contents, because these contents are still available for copying in the HTML code of your web page.
The protections that prevent direct copy of the HTML code require either to have a full control over the server hosting your website, or are based on non-universal proprietary formats that will forbid access to many of your visitors unless they install the relevant softwares which are not available to all their devices or not supported any more by many browsers.
CPROTEXT combines protections preventing direct copy of HTML code and content selection in browsers into one integrated solution. It has four major differences with the above protections:
HTML and CSS web standards only: while original contents are obfuscated and do not appear in the HTML code of the protected web page, your visitors are not required to install constraining proprietary softwares or browser plugins to display these pages.
selection prevention by design: in most browsers, independently of any specific or easily bypassed instructions, contents are not selectable; for others, the copy and paste of the selected contents will result in useless data; this leaves no possibility to copy the texts or images by using browser select/copy/paste/save features.
old-fashioned flesh and blood reader required: browsers, web crawlers and scraping tools will not be able to restore the protected contents in their original digital unprotected form; the original content is only understandable because of a human reader ability to convey meaning to what remains random data to any other devices.
resistance to undesirable editing: if someone attempts to modify one or several characters in the protected content by editing its HTML and CSS code, it will result in more unintentional modifications all over the displayed text, blatantly exposing the fraud.
Since CPROTEXT modifies the structure of the original document, the protected part will necessarily be unavailable to Web Accessibility related tools such as screen readers. Therefore, we strongly encourage CPROTEXT users to include an audio version of their protected document so that people who require these tools will not be impaired by the content protection.
A lot of online services or offline softwares are able to generate an audio file that will be a reading of your document. To solve this accessibility issue and avoid discrimination of these visitors, it is the CPROTEXT user responsibility to add a link to such an audio file before a protected document.
Wether you choose to do so or not, protected contents can embed a text available to screen readers, web crawlers and scraping tools to give them whatever information you consider important for them to process.
A Pay-What-You-Want policy is a pricing system where buyers are free to set the amount to pay for a product. It transforms an unbalanced relationship between the sellers and the buyers into an exchange involving two equal partners. Compared to preset prices, buyers are given the freedom to assess the product value according to their specific usage, which suppresses a possible overpricing feeling and allows for testing before embracing.
