Creating a custom DRM web application
I am currently working on a final project for school and I am looking for any kind of advice or someone that could point me in the right direction. The main goal is to prevent people from sharing this content online. I am given a 500+ page word document that will be sold online and viewed online to the user . My first attempt was converting the document to a PDF and restricting access to printing, copying and pasting, and also adding a static password but didn't realize people can just pass the content to a friend with the password. I looked up a few sites that seems to be a web application for DRM and I think that is the proper solution.
Two sites that I came across that solve this issue very well are:
My question to you guys:
Do you know of any sites that protect their online content similar to the two above?
I'd suggest using a pdf, you're always going to have the issue with people passing data around... Unless your attempting at going for a full blown enterprise solution, I don't think it's too feasible.
Is it a requirement for your school?
