PDF - For maximum security, you should not allow printing or exporting of PDF files. You can use a custom license to manage printing rights or you can secure the PDF before uploading.

FlickRocket uses those security flags to determine what rights our digital rights management (DRM) will allow. Managed print options available when using a custom license include no printing, allow x number of pages per print session, or unlimited printing. The Export option allows export of an unprotected PDF file.

To set the PDF security permissions in Adobe Acrobat before uploading:
(These are general instructions as the settings and locations may vary in different versions of Adobe Acrobat.)

  1. Open PDF using Adobe Acrobat and select File>Properties.
  2. Select the Security tab and change Security Method to Password Security.
  3. Restrict the printing and editing of the document and change both Printing Allowed and Changes Allowed to None. Make certain that the checkbox for copying of text, images, and other content is not enabled.
  4. Enter a password and confirm that password for these permissions.

But what do you do if you want to upload hundreds or thousands of content items? Well, for that case the uploading process can be automated. How this works and what to consider when doing so is something I want to explain in this post.

Flickrocket supports a wide variety of different product types which includes also physical products which are shipped to customers. There are a number of different ways to set these up, which are described in this blog post.

It is important to understand which of the options to use in which case. Using the wrong option will likely cause confusion of your customers and result in wrong orders causing unnessecary support.

Access to DRM (Digital Rights Management) controlled content from a FlickRocket shop is managed by licenses defined by the content owner together with general device policies by FlickRocket.

The goal behind this is to enable different business models (e.g. rental and permanent rights) with comfortable use by customers while preventing illegal use and sharing.

To reach that goal, the DRM architecture has to deal with the following challenges:

You are probably aware how to utilize FlickRocket as your primary shopping cart for sales. But in this blog post I want to highlight how FlickRocket can also be used to extend third party shopping carts with digital content functionality.

When thinking about the use of third party shopping carts, the obvious question is, why use them at all? How does FlickRocket extend the 3rd party cart? What is the benefit of using 3rd party carts compared to using FlickRocket only? What’s the downside? In this blog post I want to answer these questions and give you some more background information.
