Description mkol 2005-01-21 14:31:06 UTC
Presently OOo documents can be password protected but there is no way to enforce document restrictions, similar to those offered by PDF files. Like - Document printing Content copying Comment writing Form filling Document signing etc. In other words, what other users can or cannot do with a document. MSO has also started offering this kind of functionality. Is it possible for OOo to move in this direction?

reassigned to requirements

*Restricted* OOo Files (As of now Hypothetical) must *Not* be openable in other applications, as it can easily circumvent proposed Restrictions/Access Rights.

OOo is an Open source Project/Product. What if users change the source code and create their own versions of OOo, which do not follow the proposed Access Rights/Restrictions?
