LockLizard Protector www.locklizard.com/html_security.htm has been specifically designed to stop e-learning courses from being pirated. It prevents unauthorized users from accessing course content, and controls what authorized users can do with it (copy, share, print for example) and for how long.
Serious e-learning growth has yet to happen. Why? LockLizard's creators cite that e-learning companies, which have to rely on the revenue they receive from their courses, are unable to prevent users from giving course content to others.
LockLizard Protector delivers digital rights management (DRM) technology to the e-learning marketplace with encryption to protect course content. Its creators say it is the first DRM-enforcing product specifically focused at protecting an e-learning company's revenue streams.
LockLizard Protector's instant revocation and expiry controls ensure the latest version of course materials are always used and customers continue paying for your content. Protector's printing controls can limit the number of prints that can be made.
LockLizard controls a wide range of file types—HTML, HTM, JPG, GIF, TIF, PNG, TXT, CSV and SWF (Flash). It has built-in PDF to HTML and DOC to HTML converters. AVI, MPG, WAV and MP3 files can be converted to Flash to get the benefits of full protection for multimedia.
LockLizard Protector entry level pricing is $3,495 for a subscription license, with perpetual and own-server licenses available.
