Content Protection Method to Control Editing by Billing

Tomohiro Kobayashi, Keiichi Iwamura, Masaki Inamura

Abstract

In consumer-generated media (CGM), where consumers themselves generate and transmit content, it is important to promote secure content circulation. Content circulation includes the editing of content, and it is desirable for content to become more abundant and varied. For copyright protection suitable for CGM, a technology (Katsuma et al., 2015, Tatsuya et al., 2016) has been proposed that controls editing using digital signatures, and guarantees the copyright of the original content even for secondary use. However, in those scheme, the content that the author has declared as editing-prohibited once is always kept as editing-prohibited thereafter, and the circulation of the content is stagnant from then onwards. Therefore, we propose a method in which the author can securely provide individual editing permissions for content that has been sent as editing-prohibited. Specifically, when an author wants to transmit content as editing-prohibited, and then an editor wants to view it and purchase the right to edit the content, this method offers a way to securely buy and sell the right to edit content in exchange for money. Therefore, this method is applicable to commercial content circulation. It is possible to promote content circulation while protecting the rights of the author by using the proposed method, even in scenarios where content circulation is stagnant with conventional methods.
