Scrambling copyright ebooks to help troubleshoot problems ???

I have a question regarding trying to help users who post on these Forums about a problematic copyright ebook on their ereader of choice.

Does anyone think it would it be useful to have a simple utility which scrambles the contents of a de-DRM'd copyright ebook sufficiently that the Moderators would be happy for that scrambled copy to be attached on MR? The aim being to scramble the text content whilst leaving the ebook structure and styling intact to make troubleshooting the user's actual problem more straightforward for all who try to help?

Any thoughts? Especially regarding what would constitute "enough scrambling" for the Moderators to be happy.

If it's thought to be worth pursuing I could attach a first attempt at a Scrambler utility - for epub, kepub, azw3.

Just FYI ... for my own private purposes I needed to practice using some of the Calibre ebook manipulation coding tools so I chose this as a little project. If it's not worth pursuing, that's OK, I needed the practice anyway In its current state it's not a Calibre plugin (although it easily could be) it's a drag-and-drop the ebook onto a Windows .bat file and a scrambled copy of the book is created on the PC. For the time being I decided to keep scrambled copies well away from the Calibre library.

Some past observations:
When a user posts asking for help with a perceived problem with a copyrighted book there often follows a frustrating sequence of events: e.g.
  • due to ignorance rather than malicious intent, user attaches a copy of the copyrighted material in the Forum. This results in a threatening intervention from a Moderator which probably is quite upsetting for the user, especially if they are new to MR and ebooks.
  • a more experienced user tries to help and asks to see small HTML/CSS extracts to try to diagnose the problem. This can be a lengthy to-and-fro with many misunderstandings, after all, if the user was knowledgeable about HTML/CSS they probably wouldn't be posting for help in the first place!
  • user tries to construct a small sample of the ebook to demonstrate the problem and creates more (and different) errors than exist in the original. This is not helpful to either party.
  • swapping of PMs, email addresses or public links to Cloud storage ensues. Putting copyright material in a public area is not really desirable because there's a risk of having your Cloud account closed.

EbookScramble utility

Purpose:
  • Read a copyrighted EPUB/KEPUB/AZW3 un-DRM'd ebook file and create a copy with scrambled text contents.
  • The aim is to create a book sufficiently mangled to allow a full upload to MobileRead without breach of copyright.
  • This should make it easier for MR members to request and offer help with problematic ebooks.

Calibre plugin version: moved to Calibre Plugin sub-forum.

Standalone version:
  • Runs via a Windows .bat file.
    N.B. Running .bat files on newer versions of Windows will probably require you to give permission to run
    an unrecognised application.
  • Needs calibre to be installed, but it doesn't need to be open.
    This is a Python script which relies heavily on existing Calibre code.
    It is not necessary to have a full Python installation as Calibre will take care of what's needed.
How to use the standalone:
  1. Unzip the attached standalone zip file to a Windows PC location of your choice.
  2. Open the EbookScramble directory.
  3. Drag-drop an un-DRM'd ebook (epub, azw3, kepub, kepub.epub) onto the .bat file,
    Drop_AZW3_EPUB_KEPUB_here_or_DoubleclickMe.bat
    You can also just double-click it and use the GUI to load the book.
  4. Books (epub, kepub.epub) dragged from a USB-connected reader should also work.
    Unsure about a connected Kindle if on-device file extension is not azw3.
  5. Use the 'Change rules' option to choose which aspects of the book to scramble. Default settings are those agreed by MR.
  6. The scrambled copy will be created in a directory of your choice.

Limitations:
There are some languages for which the scrambling algorithm is not effective.
This currently includes: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, but there will be others.

The rule-of-thumb about which languages are 'safe' is that if both of the following are true then it's safe:
  • ALL alpha chars of ALL alphabets used in the book have 2 different unicode versions, an uppercase and a lowercase
  • All numeric chars used in the book are standard 0-9
You are encouraged to use the included 'Preview content' button to double-check that copyrighted content has been properly obscured.


How is the book scrambled? MR default settings are:
  • Book content - alpha chars replaced with random choice a-z
  • Digits 0-9 - scrambled to another digit
  • UPPER/lowercase retained - paragraphs look "realistic" but meaningless.
  • Hyperlink anchors which don't contain any alpha text are unchanged
  • TOC ncx - alpha chars replaced with random choice a-z, digits unchanged
  • Punctuation, spaces - unchanged
  • Images (jpg, gif, png) - all (incl. cover) replaced with dummy image of same dimensions/filetype
  • Images (svg) - replaced with dummy svg image
  • Fonts - non-obfuscated embedded fonts removed
    - obfuscated embedded fonts unchanged
  • OPF file - some descriptive metadata text removed (description, calibre-specific items)
  • CSS files - unchanged

Remaining work:
  • Further refinement of scrambling method ???

Version History:
  • v0.0.5 - update Jan 19, 2017
    Remove extra calibre-specific metadata from EPUB3 format books
  • v0.0.4 - general release Nov 27, 2015
    Calibre plugin moved to own thread in Calibre Plugin sub-forum
  • v0.0.3 - beta release Nov 20, 2015
    • Less destructive SVG image handling
    • Cleanup-as-you-go for calibre Temp files when using calibre plugin
  • v0.0.2 - beta release Nov 1, 2015
    • calibre plugin beta version added. In the plugin the scrambling rules are fixed at those agreed by the MR Moderating Team in this thread.
    • Standalone version is still a drag-and-drop Windows .bat file but, once open, it is GUI throughout.
    • Preview option added (both versions). You can see, side-by-side, Original vs. Scrambled text content.
      N.B. This is a simple utility not a full-featured Viewer such as calibre's.
    • Standalone version now allows scrambling Rules config.
      Some options are stricter than MR require. They are included because the work was almost done when MR relaxed their initial stance a little.
    • Standalone version also includes a couple of extra, 'FYI reports':
      - Metadata, Before vs. After
      - Calibre error checks, Before vs. After
      These were added to make life easier when testing. So I've tidied them up a bit in case they're useful to anyone else.
    • How alphanumeric chars are scrambled is unchanged.
  • v0.0.1 - alpha release Oct 18, 2015

Sounds interesting. If possible leave items like ToC entries / Headings un-scrambled.

Also I presume that rather than scrambling, the text would be replaced by random text (possibly Lorem Ipsum based).


Might also be an idea for a Sigil plugin?

Thanks for replying, Peter.

Re: the NCX TOC - to scramble or not to scramble is trivial from a technical POV. The question would be what the Moderators think is acceptable. At the moment I've played safe and scrambled.

Re: an inline TOC - this is more difficult as there is no 100% reliable programmatic way to determine whether the page with the most hyperlinks is an inline TOC or a page of Endnotes (or something else entirely). The Eyeball Method is very reliable but I'm not currently considering an interactive utility with endless user settings. I'd rather err on the safe side of scrambling an inline TOC than revealing the Endnotes.

Re: Headings. That might be possible to some extent if only text from <h1>, <h2> etc tags were revealed but, as we all know, many books are not created with logical tags. Once again the Moderators would need to have their say. Until then, when in doubt ... scramble.

No I did mean scrambling. I want the book to have the look&feel of the original as far as possible without being able to read/comprehend any of it. Rather than describe it I've added a sample before/after page in post #2.

Perhaps, but only by someone other than me I haven't used Sigil since the Calibre Editor was released.

So images are mangled too it would seem?

What are you thinking about for embedded fonts?

I think the images would have to be mangled, or in this case replaced with a dummy image of the correct dimensions/format, as when a book has DRM the image files are often (always???) encrypted, even when there are only 2 included images (a useless generic cover and the Publisher's logo ).

Re: embedded fonts I haven't done anything with this so far - mainly because I'm not clear what the best do-able solution would be. More thinking and Calibre code-digging required.

I usually strip all embedded fonts myself so don't have a lot of experience. Is it possible to de-obfuscate an obfuscated font? If not then I'm not sure why they can't be left as-is.

Non-obfuscated fonts are another matter. Some are OK to leave as-is (e.g. Charis), some are not. The safest legal thing to do would be to remove them all from the scrambled version. I'm sure this is do-able because Calibre Polish and Modify Epub already do it. Although I don't think there's an option to remove some fonts and not others.

I like the idea and that is a very good start. The things I can think of:

- I think I'd like to see the ToC left alone. As this might be where the problem is, regenerating or playing with it might fix the issue. Or maybe not touch it of it is just "Chapter x".

- The fonts are a problem and I haven't a clue on handling them.

- I think it would be safe if the only images are the cover and a publishers logo. Both of these are easily obtainable and "fair use" probably applies. But, a book with a lot of images becomes a problem.

If you're going to scramble a book, you should change its title too just to not be confusing. Maybe prepend "scrambled" to it.

ToC is probably fair use.
As is the semantic cover image (easy to pinpoint with a plugin).




Sounds like an interesting and useful plugin.


Though I'd be happy too if moderators took the time to write a more descriptive warning.



My form response for oversized images:

Only issue I can see with scrambling is someone reversing it and thus getting whatever books users post for free.

I don't know if it would really be worth their time and energy given the general ease of pirating digital content, but it's an objection I can see the moderators raising. Where as replacing the text of a book with a static block would be impossible to reverse, if you're worried about it not representing the text of the book maybe just generate word lists so there are a few words of each size to throw in the place of the text of the book. Even if the end user knows the entire word list, they'd have a monumental time trying to reconstruct the book from this since 'read' and 'said' could, in theory, both be replaced by 'boat'.

From looking at the sample, I don't think the scrambling is based on the same letters being transposed; rather it looks like a random character is generated, with the only proviso being that words stay the same length.

Just to confirm, there is no "scrambling key", hence no "de-scrambling key" either. Every alpha-character is scrambled independently of every other alpha-character. So unless anyone strongly suspects that the Python random module isn't really random then I don't think that should be a problem, but I don't have any cryptography skills

At the moment punctuation, spaces and digits 0-9 are left unscrambled.

In addition, every alpha-character retains its upper/lower case, so that paragraphs and word-wrapping look "realistic" ... but possibly Klingon-esque.

Technically, I'm pretty sure that this would still be copyright infringement. You'd be creating what copyright law calls a "derived work" - ie you're creating a new work from the copyrighted original - and you require the permission of the copyright holder to do that. The fact that it's not readable doesn't change that.

IIRC Sigil used to make some fairly significant structural auto-changes during opening. Is this still the case? IMO this is not necessarily helpful when the aim is troubleshooting. Does anyone else have an opinion?
