I have a client who publishes a print magazine. They want to move everything to a digital format, while still producing the printed version. Subscribers to the magazine will have access to back issues online for free.
There are two parts to this project I have to tackle with them:
1. Converting old print copies to a digital format. Some of the back issues exist in print only. What's the best method for getting these into some sort of industry standard format (PDF or whatever) while keeping the text intact text instead of images (assuming some sort of built in OCR)?
2. Protecting the content behind a web login is a no brainer. However, we also need to protect the content files from being pirated, and this includes copy/pasting from the content viewed inside a browser as well.
How do I proceed? Anyone here have any experience with digital rights management who can give some insight?
FYI... I am not hired to do this project in the sense that I will not be scanning and converting all this content myself. I am a contractor who handles all their web server management and its content, and they want my recommendations and guidance so far as what direction to take, what software or services to we should use, etc.
