PROBLEM:

Currently, anyone can double click on an image (even if it's locked) and access the original version of the image. This poses a lot of risk for IP (Intellectual Property) theft whereby any asset on the canvas is easily downloadable and can be used elsewhere without permission.

CONSEQUENCES OF LEAVING THIS OPEN:

The easy access to imagery prevents creators from releasing high value quality design work to the platform due to the high risk of asset reuse without permission

---

USE CASES

As a user, I want to control who can and cannot open up / download the original images from my canvas.

At a minimum...

As a creator, I expect that if I lock an image, no-one without editor rights can access the original image

As a creator, I expect that if I facilitator lock an image, no-one except those with facilitator access can access the original image

Ideally...

As a creator, I would like to be able to control access to the original image, even if it is unlocked.

Use case: I have interactive objects in the form of images. These images are made specifically for the canvas, but could ultimately be useful for users in other canvases. The images need to be interactive (therefore unlocked), but I don't wish to give easy access to be able to use the items elsewhere. Ergo a control for imagery is of high necessity in order to maintain control of my creative workCurrently, anyone can double click on an image (even if it's locked) and access the original version of the image. This poses a lot of risk for IP (Intellectual Property) theft whereby any asset on the canvas is easily downloadable and used elsewhere without permission.
