  • Patent number: 9864850
    Abstract: A method of relicensing digital encrypted radio media content transmitted via a network and received by a user electronic device includes receiving a request to relicense an encrypted digital media data file included within digital encrypted radio media content. The encrypted digital media data file is retrieved from the digital encrypted radio media content stored in a memory of the user electronic device. The encrypted digital media data file is decrypted using a radio encryption key to generate an unbound digital media data file. The unbound digital media data file is bound with the user electronic device to generate, a bound encrypted digital media data file. The bound encrypted digital media data file is stored in the memory of the user electronic device.

  • Patent number: 9853959
    Abstract: An electronic personal data locker system is described in which personal data is stored, organized, accessed, and/or maintained, among others activities. In an embodiment, the personal data locker system comprises multiple personal data lockers that each store different types of personal information and/or data of a user. The personal data lockers are established by the system and may be integrated with mobile computing devices. The system may enable the sharing of the gathered data with third parties and/or may enable the user to set preferences for what data is to be shared with various third parties. The system may further provide convenience in providing personal data to third parties via a standard application programming interface (API). The system may also enable the finding and/or calculating of user-related insights based on the gathered data through correlation, aggregation, and/or analysis of the user's personal data.

  • Patent number: 9773243
    Abstract: A system may include a point-of-sale system that gathers payment card track data from a payment card and a payment gateway that processes the track data to authorize purchase transactions. Discretionary data in a discretionary field of the track data may be compressed to create space that may be used to accommodate additional security data. The sensitive information may be moved to the discretionary field. The compressed discretionary data and the sensitive information may be encrypted using a structure preserving encryption algorithm and a managed encryption key. The managed encryption key or other additional security data may be added the discretionary field. Track data that has been modified in this way may be conveyed to the payment gateway for processing. The payment gateway may extract the key management data, decrypt the encrypted data, and reconstruct the original track data by decompressing the discretionary data and replacing the sensitive track data.

  • Patent number: 9292842
    Abstract: Systems and methods to provide licensing and licensing management to source code components. The system receives a request from a component developer for a component license. The system sends a public key, a component identifier, and licensing code to the developer and the developer embeds the public key, the component identifier, and the licensing code within the source of the component. The developer sends the embedded component to the system, which publishes the component for sale on a web site. A purchaser of the component can embed the component, API code, and a generated license key into a developed application. The API code is invoked, which activates the component within the application. The application can be sent to the system where it can be published to a web site for sale.
