Protecting my web seminar from piracy

How to give web seminars securely?

When I give a web seminar, is it always possible for the viewer to record his desktop and snag a video of my desktop?

I assume it is.

I have no problem with that, unless it gets posted somewhere. Ouch!

But, what about the audio?

I suppose that would also "come along for the ride" if the person were using the web for audio. But wouldn't that be a bit tricky?

If the person was on a conference bridge using the normal telephone system, they'd need to match up the audio with the video. Also, a pretty simple things to do.

Am I worried for good reason? I hear of someone posts a video of my seminar, there is little I can do to stop it.

Curious.

Thanks.

That's always a risk. You can do the best to protect your work, but in the end EVERYTHING is possible to be copied. Even if you paid a lot of money to have your content securely transmitted, with rights management and all, it could be as simple as screen recording software (which can include audio), or even just pointing a camera at the monitor.
When it DOES end up somewhere else, depending on how reputable the website is, you can always fight to get it removed. From dubious sharing sites, it will be more difficult of course.
So if you have the budget, try this: https://www.vdocipher.com/
If not a lot of budget, just put video behind a paywall.

You should consider putting a strong copyright on your material and perhaps get a lawyer to assist you with this.

As mentioned above, you cannot prevent copying.  What you can address and have some control over is later use of the copied material.
