About the CopySafe eBook Store

The CopySafe eBook Store is a free service provided to authors of copy protected publications.

The difference between the CopySafe eBook Store and other eBook listing services is that eBooks created using CopySafe and ArtistScope solutions are protected from copying and unauthorized distribution using the most secure solutions available today, while all other eBook solutions are not very well protected at all. In fact most eBook formats have actually been designed to be so portable that they can be read in a variety of different eBook readers and on a variety of different platforms, which makes copy protection and the enforcement of a DRM policy impossible to maintain.

While some authors only think as far as making a sale of their eBook, others are thinking beyond sales and considering the loss of their livelihood from the unauthorized distribution and forwarding to others. Without proper protection an author only needs to sell one copy for it to be forwarded onto others, thus depriving the author of further revenue and livelihood.

Unless an author intends to encourage the free distribution of their eBooks, then they need to use CopySafe PDF and the CopySafe eBook Store which has been specially designed to manage protected publications.
