Drupal Settings Detail

Display Options

Choose whether you want the iCopyright Toolbar and Interactive Copyright Notice to appear on your posts automatically or manually. The default is automatic.

Choose whether you want to display both the iCopyright Toolbar (that appear at the top of the articles) and the Interactive Copyright Notice (that appears at the bottom of articles), or just one of them. On full nodes, the default — which we strongly recommend — is to display both. On teasers, we’ve set the default to display only the Interactive Copyright Notice, but adjust this if you like.

Article Tools

Here you can modify the appearance of the iCopyright Toolbar on your site. You can align it to the right or left of articles. You can deploy a horizontal or vertical version of the iCopyright Toolbar. You can select a color theme for the iCopyright Toolbar and specify whether it has an opaque rectangle around the buttons. The preview gives you an advance peek of how the options you’ve selected look. You can adjust the node types and taxonomy terms on which you would like the iCopyright Toolbar to appear.


Interactive Copyright Notice

Here you can adjust node types and taxonomy terms on which you’d like the Interactive Copyright Notice to be displayed.



Under Features there are three settings: Share services, EZ Excerpt and Syndication. Additional features can be adjusted by going to your Conductor console.

Share services. Many websites look messy by displaying a plethora of social media buttons. Also, many readers interpret these buttons to mean that you don’t care if they copy/paste from your site. To fix both of these issues, when the Share services are set to “On” (the default) the iCopyright Toolbar displays Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, and Google+ buttons from within the toolbar, alongside your paid posting services. With this integrated arrangement, readers who use the free media buttons to post links back to your site are also exposed to the paid services that allow them to post full-text versions of your articles on their own website. It’s a great way to upsell from free to paid services and to improve the look of your site. And the full-spectrum of services leaves little excuse for copy/pasters to keep pirating your content. If you nonetheless prefer to keep your social media services separate from the toolbar, set Share services to “Off.” Turning off the Share services will also cause the “Share” button on the toolbar to be renamed “Post.”

EZ Excerpt. Most content piracy occurs via copy-and-paste. EZ Excerpt encourages copy/pasters to respect your copyrighted content. When EZ Excerpt is activated, any reader who highlights a portion of your article for copying is presented with a box asking them “Obtain a license?” If the reader selects “yes” he or she will be offered the opportunity to license the excerpt for purposes of posting on the reader’s own website. The default setting for this feature is to enable EZ Excerpt.

Syndication. The Syndication Feed service enables other websites to subscribe to a feed of your content and pay you based on the number of times your articles are viewed on their sites at a CPM rate you specify. When you receive your Welcome email, click to go into Conductor and set the business terms you would like (Publishers > Services > Republish > Get Syndication Feed). Until you do that, default pricing and business terms will apply. For more information, in Conductor, click Help then Syndication.

Click “Save Configuration” to apply your changes.

Note: Advanced Settings.  Most users can ignore this section. If you previously activated iCopyright for your website but then deleted it, and now wish to reactivate, you will have been told “The publication name is already taken” when attempting to re-register. Instead of re-registering, simply insert your Publication ID number here and click “Save Configuration” to go live again. You can find your Publication ID number in Conductor, under Publications > Profile (if you’ve forgotten your Conductor password, get a reminder here).  Also if you already have a Conductor account for one publication and are adding a second (or third, or fourth) publication to the same Conductor account, enter the Publication ID of the second publication in this field.  See the FAQs for more details.
