Hello everyone, .

This is my first time joining an online community to seek assistance on topics i don't know. 

I would appreciate it if anyone can guide me on how to make my website a "Copy Protected". I have been suffering from this issue where my competitors browse my website and copy the text and images which i have on my website.

Again, it would be highly appreciated and thank you.

Hi there @Blackera!

Don here from Shopify.

If you're looking for ways to deter copying from your site, you can look at the selection of image copy disable apps in our app store.

I know from previous examples, our specialist teams advise that the best way to protect your images from unauthorised redistribution is simply to watermark your images, as this will provide even greater protection from unwanted copying.

When it comes to text, it would be harder to prevent this simply being copied, but there are remedies available where you see your work being used without your permission.

For any store using Shopify, you can file a DMCA takedown notice using this form.

This would allow the holder of any copyright or intellectual property to file a report about that being used elsewhere without their permission and our Legal team will review these reports internally and act on them as appropriate.

Are you selling online at the moment?
