[EP-tech] Spam to submitter via "Copy request" form

CAUTION: This e-mail originated outside the University of Southampton.

Hi out there

we have received some feedback regarding spam via the "Copy Request". Lots of emails gone to one submitter. Does anybody use any capture or something else in this direction?

First I found something in /usr/local/eprints/lib/workflows/request/default.xml (line 22ff.) - using googles capture https://www.google.com/recaptcha/about/ but for sure we will have problems with data privacy.

Second i found some hints in the Eprints wiki: A captcha pseudo-field based on http://recaptcha.net/

Anything else? Cookies, Perl driven stuff? What do you guys use?

Every hint is welcome
