Does WebWhale work with Custom Post Types or only standard WordPress posts?

Is copyright protection valid worldwide?

Our copyright registration is valid worldwide. It’s proof of ownership that’s backed by blockchain technology. Regarding the enforcement, most of the infringement cases are solved by simply sending a DMCA takedown notice along with the certificate of ownership we provide.

Are the photos on my web pages and blogs also protected?

Yes, the whole blog is protected. We take a full screenshot of the post, so everything is included in the copyright registration process. For monitoring we use the text and the featured image of your posts.
