Copyright Control for Digital Content

Controlling copyrighted works is a necessity for today's pubishers. Some solutions, like paywalls, work well enough for newspapers and similar products where articles appear and change frequently and the product is the information stream more than the individual story. But document-based content like newsletters, journals and some types of book publishing is rarely distributed via a portal that can be paywalled. Information shared via documents is best protected at the document level.

Powerful but Invisible

The best access control mechanisms are the ones that create the least inconvenience for legitimate users while still excluding the others, or inviting them to sign up.
