If something has happened with the arrival of the Internet is that we are faced with a whole lot of new options and things we can do.
But at the same time we tend to tell people what they should do and when based on our past experiences, leaving little option to the very much needed experimentation.
Also not all the choices do have the same support from a legal or technological perspective.
That is why we are what you could call a “pro choice” of authors regards their works. What does this mean?
From the very beginning we have had the following in mind:
- To offer a solution for any budget, even the non-existent budget one, all with the same level of evidence generation strength.
- To be agnostic regards the “licensing” or “protection” mode the author chooses, providing any of those options with the same kind of tools.
About the solution for any budget:
In Safe Creative you will have the best prices of any private and even public registrators, as you can choose for a basic free of charge account, and very afordable payed accounts, like the premium, professional and corporate accounts. Even more, you can even hire our engine to create your own registration service, for any purpose, and for a very low fee. And all registrations made with Safe Creative, no matter the account, receive all the benefits of our technology. All type of accounts can use digital certificates to identify the user, and the evidence is timestamped with the same technology. The difference between accounts? Simple, some features: Some features oriented for specific user profiles. The more professional you get to be, the more and new things you are likely to need.
So basically anybody can use the best registration technology with a fair price.
About the protection mode:
And here is the matter of the article. We don’t prejudize the protection mode an author chooses. In Safe Creative, from the very beginning of the project, authors have been able to ecqually choose “all rights reserved” and or “some rights reserved” philosophy at their will. Why? Because we provide a service for many, and everyone has different needs, issues and sensibilities. We cannot know everything and in a context of changing environment, such as Internet, the ability to change your opinion, therefore protection mode, is key for success. And here is where Safe Creative stands as a system that allows options to be choosen.

Right, we all know that not all the pictures we take during your summer can be considered as art works, but as a matter of fact, and since we take so many pictures during these days, it’s likely to happen that we find ourselves with a couple of great pictures. And those images deserve some kind of protection because they might be outstanding.
What to do?
Quite simple: Our suggestion is to register them in Safe Creative using ART.
What is ART?
ART stands for Automatic Registration Tool, and well, the name -ART- is quite cool also.
We simply have install the ART program, we will find in our tools section of our web, in our computer. It runs on GNU/Linux, Mac and Windows systems, and allows to define a folder which contents will be registered. All the new contents we put in that folder, when ART is running, will be automatic registered in Safe Creative under a profile of our selection.
We might have several folders with different assigned profiles, thus different type of works and or protection ways.
So all we do is start ART, authorize it in Safe Creative when it ask for it, copy or drag and drop files to be registered there, and once registered we have the technological evidence we need to be confident enough to send those files to other online publishing services, like social networks.
If we have many pictures we recommend to hire a premium account for only 36 euros a year.
And if anybody has a question, trouble or suggestion, we will be more than happy to try to help through our contact form.
By the way, enjoy this months and don’t forget to follow us in Twitter and Facebook

It is very usual to have problems with some large companies that offer key strategic services such as energy or telecommunications. A common situation is that sometimes they simply ignore the messages of complaint they get from customers, being afterwards very difficult to prove that those messages have been actually sent.
Such is the case a user of mail.serialstamper.com has told us where -if his complaint had been ignored- the situation would have become a problem too in the case much time would pass.
In this case the user tells us that when changing from an electricty provider to another, got a bill from the previous company for the last five days of contract with a way too high electricity consumption not matching the real one. Actually the amount charged in the bill was even higher than the one of a normal full month.
When communicating with the company, to point out the error, he decided to warn them that the message was leaving legal evidence capable of demonstrating that the complaint was being made at that specific time and with the specific content. In the event of not getting and answer he would be able to proof that he was being ignored by the company. Result: Reply from the company admitting the error within 24 hours, refund in less than five days. Problem solved by being able to “Cc” a verification e-mail from mailstamper.com.
This system allows to stamp the sending mail with information of its content, who is getting it and the time, minute and second the e-mailing happens.
Now big companies can’t simply ignore their customers communications because its dead easily to proof that the sending of those communication has taken place.
Simple, effective and great!
