The project aims to protect the images posted on the Internet from being copied or saved using “Screen Shot” features and thus protects the user from most common cyber-crimes that happen daily such as threat, blackmail and identity theft. It also protects the rights of photographers in the professional field in the absence of laws and actions to protect them. After doing a scientific research on cyber-crimes in various countries through many references and extrapolating several questionnaires to form a rich and reliable database. I deemed that the solution lies in creating a protective cyber security system that prevents screenshot process that way it breaks one of the 3 elements that form cyber-crimes and as a result prevents them from happening. I called it "Zarad" which means "shield" in ancient Arabic.
