WP Copyright

Description

This plugin can be used as a discrete but efficient tool for websites which have to make sure that copyright information for images is mandatory.

How it works: It simply blurs all uploaded images. The original only gets restored when the copyright info is set.
The text field for the copyright info is provided as a form field in the attachment details view.

A simple but elegant solution to enforce copyright discipline among authors and editors.

This plugin is compatible with the plugin “Enhanced Media Library” (tested with version 2.4.5).

Screenshots

  • Upload & Restore
  • Uploaded images get blurred immediately.
  • The original image gets restored when the copyright text field is not empty anymore.

  • PHP version 5.6 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater
