#moodledev – Copy protect PDF files before they are sent to each user

September 21st, 2015

Many times you may be thinking to protect your hard work from sharing without proper credits. It has been requested many times on Moodle forums to help protect the PDF files before downloading so that the users will be discouraged to share with others.

Daniel Neis Araujo the Moodle community member from Brazil, has come up with a brilliant idea to add some personal details to files so that users are “discouraged” to share the contents of a course as they will share it with their email address, phone number, and “idmsn”, it can be used to more “noble” cases.

He has submitted his work on github page through this commit. What are your views about the development by Daniel, If you like the work, then share your feedback, suggestions, improvements, share your views on the Moodle Forums here.
