#Innovative solutions for copyright and intellectual property protection
Blue2Digital has designed Digital Chip Card Technology, or DCCT for short, an innovative, sustainable and functional solution that covers all aspects of copyright and intellectual property protection, primarily in the digital world. DCCT helps us globally and uniquely authenticate digital works that are sold, bought, listened to, read, or viewed and raise the security and credibility of the data to the highest possible level.
In order for a digital work to be fully copyrighted and uniquely identified, we must undertake a digital copyright protection procedure that consists of several steps.
#Collect and digitally encrypt evidence that protect your copyright
In light of copyright protection, the first step to take is to protect the evidence that proves our ownership of the copyrighted work. The best form of protection for this type of document is encryption. A document is encrypted when we want to disable access to its content and prevent it from falling into the hands of those who are likely to misuse it.
Collect all the images, audio, video and text files that testify to the various stages of your work's progression and digitally encrypt each file with a cryptographic encryption key.
Only those with the appropriate key can "unlock" (decrypt) the encrypted file and read its contents.
#Digital signatures vs. digital barcodes
A digital signature and a digital barcode are used to ensure the authenticity of a digital document, the integrity of its content and the identity of the document's owner.
Any change to a digitally signed file or a file with a digital barcode attached to it results in an error being reported during authentication.
A digitally signed document is usually not intended for the general public, but is available only to a certain group of people (eg within a company), who have the appropriate key to verify the digital signature and are interested in confirming the authenticity of that signature. If we want to make the file publicly available to more people, we will not use a digital signature, but a digital barcode.
Compared to a digital signature, a digital barcode contains a significantly larger amount of data. The digital barcode allows us to (invisibly) insert even a small audio or video promo clip into the final product that we sell or promote (audio, video, e-book, etc.) and thus address our customers in the most personal way possible.
The customers will know (and be able to confirm) that it is the original file they are listening to, watching or buying, and not a copy of a copy, as is usually the case. The quality of the product must keep pace with the extraordinary possibilities brought by modern digital technology and must not be held back by the incompetence of those who are believed to dictate trends.
#Digital watermarking: Additional level of copyright protection with quality control
File dimensions, format, sound richness, bit rate, color, print quality, etc. are almost always affected by changes when a digital work is distributed to online sales and streaming platforms. The version presented to the audience is often usually of lower quality than the original version created by the author.
Digital signing, by definition, can only be applied to the original version of a file. No subsequent changes may be made to the file, as the attached digital signature will become unusable. The same goes for the digital barcode. This greatly limits their practical use and requires the introduction of an additional level of protection, which is adding a digital watermark to your work.
DCCT allows us to insert a digital copyright tag which cannot be removed regardless of changes to the file representing the asset. The embedded digital tag is made adaptive, invisible and inaudible and does not compromise the quality of the original file in any way.
The watermarked files produced are easy to use, reliable, robust and available for distribution to digital music stores, stock photo sites, video streaming services, e-book stores, and online marketplaces. You can use them as evidence in legal disputes and litigation.
