Made the watermark using Photoshop. And then used that picture as Watermark in Word.

Thank you freethinker.  Ishan had already spoken about the watermark insertion.  He said they had tried that and the copy cats just copied it anyway.  While it is true that if anyone is going to copy word for word themselves they will do.  I just don't want our people to feel cheated all the time.  If there is a way to put the originators name in the document that can't be altered at least it will be something.

Then watermark is the way to go. Just embedding metadata about author will do you no good, as someone can simply convert each page to image and then post the images and you will get no credit. A subtle watermark, like the one I posted, will ensure that everyone knows about the source. They can't edit that out without harming text.

Hi Xarina...

Have you ever tried websites like scribd?

You can write updates in a pdf, make it read only and then upload it to scribd.

Even from that website you can make your documents read only. People can only read it...they can't download or copy text from it. You can also change copyright settings to Traditional Copyright: All right reserved. It'll make your documents legally yours.

And if you are looking for something professional then you should obtain a digital signature which you can attach to your document.

tbh I don't like watermarks on documents, but may be its just me.

That's why I said you will be trading ease for protection. Someone can screenshot from Scribd but honestly it will be your work which will be spreading. But you won't get the credit. But that's bottom line. Whatever you do, someone will find a way to copy. If you are determined to have the work recognized as your own, watermarking is the only option.

I too don't like watermarks nor do many people but that's where you have to decide what is more important to you. The ease of your readers or the protection of your content.
