Hi All,
Happy to share with all the Fan-Fiction / Written updates writers that we have added a new feature called "CopyProtect" which basically makes the entire topic copy protected. This may not be a Full-Proof method but it certainly makes it more difficult for the people who are plagiarizing.

[NO COPY] feature continues to work the way it was working.

How to use this feature:

a) When we create a new topic it gives us a new option: "Enable Copy Protect" checkbox. You need to enable that.

b) NOCOPY tag in that post will prevent users from quoting and finding a backdoor to copy the topic. So please do use it on all the posts which needs to be copy protected.

c) NOCOPY works even better when the topic has CopyProtect enabled. As it now even scans posts of the Topic Starter and adds the statutory warning of not copying the content not just on the first post but all the posts in that topic which has "NOCOPY" forum code.

Sandhya has written it well so quoting it here so that our members can find it easily:

This is a big step towards fighting plagiarism on IF. Thank you, Vijay :)  

I had done a small guide to use the new feature on my thread...I'm sharing it here for anyone who is technologically challenged like me.

A Dummy's Guide on How To Enable Copyright feature...

1. Go to post 1 of your thread. Click edit which is below the box.

2. Click in the box beside "Enable Copy Protect". A tick mark appears.

3. Inside the post add [NO COPY] - All caps and no spaces. Click on update.

4. Enable copy protect is implemented for the entire thread. 

5. Now for the subsequent chapters on the thread ... do not forget to add, [NO COPY] once again in all caps and no spaces ... this does not allow anyone to copy the chapter. 

6. Both "Enable Copy Protect" and [NO COPY]  when used together does not allow people to copy the work or to quote (as this is a back door for copying).

7. I have used this feature and it works. 

8. Happy writing and Good luck.

Thanks Vijay... Now at least the writers can get along the business of writing without the sword of plagiarists on their head...
