Developed in 2013
Booxlane is the platform powering Projectoria.com — our ebook store. It is based on Opencart, but has significant modifications and enhacements.
The usage process is specially designed for purchasing and consuming electronic goods. A product can contain one or more files for the different formats of the same book. The platform also provides functionality to create and support accounts for multiple partnering publishers to upload their books and receive sales stats.
The most innovative feature is the approach taken with regards to copyrights protection. We have developed a stand-alone watermarking module for pdf, epub and mobi files which processes each individual file upon download and makes it unique for the respective user by inserting both visible text and meta-data. This allows reducing the cost and the serious inconvenience of using third-party DRM systems, guarantees the fair use rights of the customers and makes sure that any unauthorised distribution of files is still traceable to a specific account.
