How To Stop People From Copying & Editing Your eBooks

PDF Domination - Secure Your PDF Documents

I spent some time last week testing out some new PDF software, and if it was any good, I was going to share it with you.

Well….it was good!

And it’s something that I get asked about a lot, so I figured it would probably be useful for a lot of you.

Here is one of the most common PDF related questions I get asked:

“How can I stop people from copying my PDF eBooks?”

My answer is always the same – You can’t add protection to your PDF eBooks unless you use the Adobe Acrobat software, that currently costs around £300 – roughly $600.

So in the end, people just use free PDF converters that don’t have any security features and just hope that nobody out there decides to copy or edit their eBook.

But now when I get asked the question, I’ll be able to give a different answer – I’ll be able to point them to the new software I spent last week testing out – PDF Domination.

PDF Domination contains a standalone PDF Creator software package that runs on any Windows PC (Even Vista!), but unlike other PDF creators, it contains a number of security features. Take a look:

– Password Protect Your PDF Document
– Disable The Ability To Copy/Paste Text
– Disable Printing
– Disable Image Copying

There are also the usual features that you’d expect to see:

– Simple User Interface
– Easily Insert Clickable Links
– Integrated Word Processor (No need to spend hundreds on MS Office!)
– 1 Click PDF Creation

So that’s the software covered, but PDF Domination isn’t just 1 software application. It’s kind of difficult to describe, but it’s like a big all in one package that covers everything you need to know about creating a successful PDF eBook.

Everything from how to find a niche, writing the eBook, setting up the sales funnel, automating/tracking sales and so on.

Now personally, I think you’ll probably already know a lot of that anyway – if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you should be an expert!

But, I do think that the software module of PDF Domination is way to good to miss out on. When you compare the cost of the PDF Domination package ($47) to the cost of Adobe Acrobat ($600), you can see why I hold it in such high regard.

So if you are interested in protecting your PDF eBooks, head on over and check it out:

No worries if it’s not for you, but as a lot of you ask me about it I thought it would be worth a share!

    Hey there Dan – thanks for the tip.
    Unfortunately, I saw it too late for Aaron’s free offer (if there was one – maybe that was for you only?)
    Good program, and I really like his Graphics style, it’s right up my street!

    Hi John,
    Yes, unfortunately the freebie was just for me, one of the perks of the job I suppose 🙂

    great article, I am interested in this software but prior to purchase do you know if this will also prevent saving as my pdf files will be available online via a shared folder and I want to disable saving to the computer HD as well as copying but allow printing only. I havent seen a demo of software, none available so wanted to check if thats possible from someone who has used the product, any ideas?

    Hi Susan,
    As far as I know that wouldn’t be possible. I don’t know of any sort of software that would allow you to do what you are looking for.
