Disable Printing of Your PDF Documents with DRM Mechanisms

One of the concerns that many publishers have is that their content can without their consent, be printed and then photocopied and given to unauthorized users thus denying them a considerable portion of their due revenues. A system that can disable printing of their documents is therefore most desirable. In the Adobe Acrobat environment you can disable print but because Adobe uses password protection and passwords can be broken by the numerous password-cracking tools available, printing will go on unabated.

However, by using a non password-based DRM system from LockLizard you can comprehensively disable printing. With this software you can add PDF watermark dynamic user details that will enable you to identify the source of the illegal printouts. In cases where your clients may request to print your documents, say for the purposes of presentations, this LockLizard system gives you the ability to limit the amount of printouts that can be made and even prevent further document access upon depletion of print copies. What’s more, you can disable print in PDF, html and swf files. The add PDF watermark capability has long been an efficient anti piracy technique because all illegal contents are stamped with the username, company name, and even the date and time when the printing was done.
