Registered Commons

I think this will be extremely useful. You guys took something we did, and you added to it in a way that will really add important value and really make the copyright system - in a way that it should - work much better.

News Entry

Feature updates | 2007-10-18 00:00

Pre-registration & improved security

Registered Commons announces the following feature updates:

:: Pre-registration

Now you can describe your work and obtain a GRID (Global Release Identifier)
at, but upload your work at a later stage. This is
useful, if you want to embed the registration code in your PDF or in the ID3
tag of your sound file, which you intended to register.

:: Player integrated

Any work is presented immediately in many formats, including most audio and
video codecs. A javascript is testing, which player or plugin is available.
At the start page, a selection of registered works is now listed.

:: Hide work

A creator can make his/her work invisible. This may be useful, if the work is
registered with full copyrights. After logging in, the creator can toggle to
make the work again visible.

:: Creative Commons license compatibility

Now you can also select the jurisdiction information, when you choose a
Creative Commons license.

For describing the license in machine readable code, we now use RDFa
descriptions instead of RDF-in-HTML. This technique provides best
compatibility to Creative Commons' license description format.

:: Enhanced security

In addition to MD5, we now also offer SHA-1 encryption for the work

The above listed feature updates and some user interface improvements are
effective since 18th October 2007.
