Copy Guard is a copy protection function that prints concealed security watermarks such as "Private" or a date in the background to prevent unauthorized copying, and embeds a copy restriction pattern on all printed sheets.

If an attempt is made using a device that supports the copy guard function to copy a sheet that has been copy protected, a copy guard pattern is scanned, the copying process is canceled, and the job is deleted.
