Often, when people think of Copyright, MP3, file sharing, intellectual property, or digital rights management they think of either pirating or â€˜big mediaâ€™ taking control. This need not be the case. The Distributed Intellectual Property Rights (DIPR) environment changes this situation by granting rights to the legal user: the right to own the intellectual product, the right to copy it, the right to back-it-up, the right to a new copy if all else fails, the right to use it when and where they want, even the right to lend it. All this providing they donâ€™t abuse the rights of the author.
You donâ€™t think it will work! Read about collective rights and the DIPR system and tell me what you think.
