Digital image owners and marketers, distribute your works worry free! -
DigiBits Interactive has unveiled patent-pending technology known as DigiLock that they claim will enable professional photographers and artists to feel secure about distributing their creative works through agencies, publishers, and web sites. Digibits Interactive say that creative professionals and their distribution partners need not worry about their respective moral and economic rights if they use DigiLock as a key part of their overall identification and rights management strategy. These professionals and their agents will feel assured that if their works are modified or misappropriated they will have the means and technology to prove ownership as well as their rights to derivatives and modifications (or to prevent such derivatives and modifications from being created and marketed).
"We have just introduced DigiLock after years of development and have made it
available for a limited time as a free shareware download on our website, said
Michael Harris, DigiBits' executive vice president." DigiLock has been designed
for freelance photographers, their image bank and agency partners, artists and
museums, as well as newspaper and magazine publishers and photographers.''
DigiLock is used to create digital paper trails, provide tamper detection, help
in economic and moral rights identification and defence, and is generally used
to deter unauthorized use or modification of digital property, he added
