A big part of the OYEZ Supreme Court audio announcement today is our new strategy for helping people associate license information with MP3s. (We’ll soon move on to other file formats.)
Right now we’re just showing people how to associate verifiable license links with files. But we want to encourage the developer community and various file-sharing and media player companies to build tools that take advantage of the embedded links to make our licenses useful in the P2P and other non-web contexts.
(1) Metadata embedding in MP3s and other files
(2) The advantage of the verification link
(3) Verification link: also a traffic engine
(4) Geek-readable version of embedding strategy
Please give us your feedback below, or on the metadata discussion list.Posted 25 June 2003
