What is MediaCenter?

The open architecture design of the World Wide Web allows for an almost unlimited exchange of digital content. Digital content can be easily reproduced and transferred without compromising the original integrity of the work -- ideal  for the information consumer, but what about the publishers of the content? This open architecture presents new opportunities to pirate copyrighted material, which makes publishers less likely to make their premium quality content available. Enter MediaCenter.

MediaCenter is MediaDNA™ patented software technology that effectively protects, manages, and controls the distribution and usage of digital content. It is also the software application that allows the KnowledgeStor to keep track of your purchased articles and provide you with detailed information regarding your account. MediaCenter technology gives publishers confidence that their content will not be misused, and it gives you access to content that might otherwise be unavailable.

How does MediaCenter protect digital content?

To understand how MediaCenter protects content, we must take a moment to discuss publishers and contracts.  Publishers impose specific rules regarding the use of their content. For example, whereas one publisher lets you view a document, another publisher may let you copy and print a document. This set of rules is referred to as a contract. The contract may constitute an infinite number of rules that determine, among other things, how, by whom, and under what conditions the content can be used. As you can imagine, the contract can become very complex. MediaCenter interprets the contract and ensures that each rule is enforced when access to the content is requested.

I would like to know more about MediaCenter.
