  2. 2. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com During past decades, it has been seen that most of the economies are moving towards capitalist economies, but now the trend has transformed its pace and it has taken turn to move to the new system which is intellectual capitalism. In broad terms, intellectual capitalism (Article 2) can be rs interpreted as resulting from a confluence of a capitalist economy and a knowledge or information economy in which intellectual capital (Non Tangible Capitalized Assets) in some pe sense is dominant. This industry, these days especially, has become the most important and vital for all the developed economies, on the whole, because this is the most growing and feasible industry; as it has highest potential for growth both domestically and internationally, as well. The Intellectual capital industry, with its highest growth prospects, is also prone to many important Pa issues related to creation, use, and distribution of the digital content through e-commerce channels. de Intellectual Capital needs Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), to motivate and secure the return of the person behind the innovation of the product or producing a valuable document or coming up with amusing sound tracks. The argument goes with the discussion that intellectual property rights are causing harm to the society as a whole because they restrict the flow of products which ra are representation of our culture so they restrict the flow of sharing the culture (Article 2). On the contrary, it is argued that IPRs are the baseline for motivating the individuals to come up withpG the innovative products and hence they contribute to the well being of whole of the society in the form of growth and newer technologies (Article 2). This issue is apart, initially the main problem is discussed which is the protection of this industryTo and safety from the malpractices which surpass the security barriers and misuse or steal the material from online libraries or wherever they are stored (Form: B2C or B2B). This has been done with the use of technology, as technology provides opportunities for convenience and growth, at the same time it also pose threats because new technology brings new methods of malpractice with it. The Digital media in the form of still images, video, sound, and multimedia shows potential for growth and improvements in their use because of higher enhance human machine interaction in almost all the form of business. E-commerce (B2C and B2B) channels GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com
  3. 3. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com have become a primary distribution channel for the digital media market, which in turn has seen a dramatic growth in the last few years or so (Article 2). Keeping in view the growth and challenges of Intellectual Capital market, the international intellectual property alliance estimated the annual loss of revenue in the U.S. motion picture industry due to piracy amounting rs to US$1.5 billion, and in the record and music industries amounting to US$2.3 billion for the financial year of 2003 (IPR, 2005). It is also worth discussing that a large portion of Internet bandwidth (approximately 30%) is consumed by users exchanging illegal copies of digital media pe (Article 2). To save the market and materialize the challenges in the form of profits, IPRs has been emerging Pa as safety measures of the intellectual capital from all malpractice activities and it is worth to discuss the safety procedures here (Article 1). Two major categories of IPR protection are: copy prevention and copy detection. Copy prevention methods include software techniques such as de cryptography, password authentication, and physical media protection techniques such as CD/DVD copy prevention systems. Copy detection methods, such as digital watermarking are becoming extremely popular (Article 2). They do not directly avert theft but rather discourage it by supporting detection of stolen copyrighted material. Complete solutions to IPR protection and ra management in e-business such as digital rights management (DRM) systems have been proposed for the efficient and complete protection of digital content and management of licenses throughout its lifecycle (Article 2).pG The protection techniques for different aspects are shown in a figure of the article which is shown below; through the pyramid whole of the procedure of protection is described and whichTo comprises of whole of the DRM process of Intellectual Property Protection. According to this table the first stage self protecting level comes then metadata protection that includes MPEG1 and MPEG2. At the third stage it takes us to the level of the watermarking in which data hiding is used. The fourth level emphasizes upon the encryption level of the digital signatures and the hash functions. At the final stage and in the bottom the physical level comes that means the CD, DVD and other physical equipment protections. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com
  4. 4. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com The initial stage of pyramid is associated with the IPR protection techniques associated with the storage mediums. Next level is related to encryption techniques; here the digital signature of hash functions or both of the techniques are used for data security and protection. Next level is data hiding level which is the most important because the relevant technique of watermarking is rs most reliable, efficient and convenient to use. Next level is the metadata level; it is relatively new method to overcome the problems related to the protection of data having protection rights to be protected. The final stage on the pyramid is the self protecting level of the content (Article 2). pe This includes special logic and it offers solution for ever increasing problem of immature economy. All of the methods on the pyramid collaborate to offer an effective solution for the protection of digital content available on internet and accessible by almost everyone in the world. Pa (Article 1) Digital Rights Management Systems (DRM) de A new and complete system to protect the content online, offers opportunities and a complete solution set to manage IPR (Article 2). The benefit of this system is that it can be used with the software a company uses to manage its online selling business, so the DRM system integrates ra with the current corporate system easily offering opportunities for growth and increasing efficiency. This is also very cost effective because to implement this software, there is no need for process reengineering, current system is well integrated and the software costs less; paymentspG for the software are paid according to the usage of the service like the content which is saved for the company, instigate cost savings of the company in the form of saved content misuse and steal of the product available online, further distribute costs for the usage of the software; the cost incurred for safety is minimal compared to the costs and misuse saved.To DRM woks as independent software, because the DRM service provider authority gets the data from the company to be sold on net and then takes on the responsibility of safety and proper distribution with the usage of tailored business model. According to Rossenbalt (2002), explained in the Article 2, there are two major definitions of DRM systems: one encompasses the encryption techniques mainly, which is referred as narrow technique, and the other one is GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com
  5. 5. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com broader one which extends to the rights management by using the techniques shown above in the pyramid. Digital Watermarking: A promising solution rs The relatively new technique related to the image processing is also seen as a perfect solution for images and videos related content on the web (Article 1). This can be used to stop the illegal pe attempts to access the digital content available on net. Sometimes watermarks are visible to the humans and sometimes they are hidden and not brought on screen but the software confirms its authentic source and access the site which initiates the illegal usage. Pa Security is naturally one of the main concerns of each company in a decision to adopt DRM system. There is no DRM system which can offer perfect security from the misuse and malpractice of the content available online, especially because of the reason that perfection asks de for more and higher costs. Some technologies either prevent the illegal use and other the reuse of digital Content, so total protection is a challenge most of the time with the usage of one selective technology keeping in view the cost constrains (Article 2). ra Watermarks offering the advantage by offering multiple watermarks which run check more than once, but they are not always reliable alone. It is necessary to work with other procedures, andpG companies’ business model must adapt and check for durability. The major problem with security and protection is related to the deadlock, when a fake watermark is inserted and it becomes difficult to track the true ownership (Article 2).To The extensive growth of digital media usage has offered a lot of challenges for security problems, related to distribution and sales, most of the time. This need has given birth to the extensive need of the development of new security methods, which extensively adapt to the current business model and reduce the costs to its optimum level. The major challenges are offered in the B2C model, where human interaction is more frequent than B2B, that’s why companies are more concerned about the source and reliability of the model and software used (Article 1,2).
