You Already Built the Value In, Now See the Returns.

Digital assets are strategic assets. And they travel on a revolutionary medium that multiplies human access to knowledge, productivity, entertainment, and more.

The marketplace of ideas generates value from the work you produce. Delivering that value and being compensated, is what keeps the wheels turning.

Whether originally in analog form, or developed from the ground up exclusively for digital devices, your digital assets can quickly and safely reach the marketplace with eLicense content protection technologies for producers of:

  • PC games
  • software
  • publications & research
  • creative works
  • intellectual property
  • media & entertainment properties

eLicense content protection automatically provides each asset with individualized protection that ensures controlled, authorized usage throughout its life cycle. Developers and publishers can rapidly package their digital goods for online or offline distribution, with any rights model embedded directly into the product. This removes the technical burden from you, the producer, and allows you to focus on building superior assets.

Rules-Based Implementation Without Programming Key decisions in your strategy are easily implemented with eLicense content protection.Including trial periods, timed usage, controlled superdistibution among customers, and others. You simply decide what rights will optimize your assets’ exposure, popularity, and paid usage. eLicense provides them all in a simple, easy-to-use rules-based system that can put one or many assets into commercial distribution in a matter of minutes.

A key advantage of the eLicense system is the elimination of dual-distributions when offering free trial downloads. he native protection of your assets provided by eLicense makes edited or "crippled" versions of product unncessary, allowing:

  • one-time distribution of safely controlled, full-featured versions
  • customer exposure to full product benefits, instead of a subset of features
  • easy purchase within the product interface
  • conversion from trial to full license -- without additional product downloads, and without ever delivering unprotected product
