  • Patent number: 9811675
    Abstract: Generating a modified protected file is disclosed, including: renaming a primary content object of a protected file; and creating a modified protected file based at least in part by inserting into the protected file a replacement object for the renamed primary content object. Using the modified protected file is disclosed, including: determining that a file includes a renamed primary content object; and redirecting a data access operation to the renamed primary content object.

  • Patent number: 9350735
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for context-based dynamic information rights management (IRM) in a cloud-based document management environment. A system may include a document server configured to store a plurality of documents. The document server is coupled to an information rights server and a plurality of client computer systems via a network. One or more of the document server and the information rights server may be cloud-based. The information rights for a document stored in the document server may be determined by the information rights server based on context parameters associated with a request to download the document from the document server.

  • Patent number: 9275233
    Abstract: Generating a modified protected file is disclosed, including: creating a modified protected file at least in part by embedding a protected file into an at least partially unprotected file; and modifying a set of content type information included in the at least partially unprotected file to include a content type associated with the protected file as embedded. Using the modified protected file is disclosed, including: receiving, using a processor, a data access operation to an at least partially unprotected file; determining that the at least partially unprotected file includes a portion associated with a content type associated with embedded protected content; and redirecting the data access operation to the portion of the at least partially unprotected file associated with the content type associated with embedded protected content.

  • Patent number: 8526666
    Abstract: Methods and systems for rendering watermarks in a computer system are provided. One technique renders a content unit based on a call from an application, and renders a watermark for the content based on a call from a tool separate from the application. Another technique for rendering a watermark for content displayed on a display screen renders the content via a content window on the display, and renders the watermark via another window on the display that overlays at least a portion of the content window.

  • Patent number: 8321947
    Abstract: A dynamic watermarking capability is implemented in an enterprise rights management (ERM) or similar system that comprises a central server to which end user client machines are connectable. The central server has a database in which watermark definitions created by authorized entities are centrally stored. An end user client machine is provided with a client component that typically includes wrapper code, and watermarking rendering code. The wrapper and rendering code are instantiated when a given calling application is started, or when the application initiates a given rendering function such as a print or display operation. When the calling application begins the rendering operation, the wrapper code intercepts a given rendering function call, connects to the central server and then retrieves a watermark definition. Alternatively, the watermark definition is retrieved when a document to be rendered is first accessed on the client machine.

  • Publication number: 20070221743
    Abstract: At least one method for indicating a weather condition includes indexing a storm based on two or more parameters. One of the parameters is a travel speed of the storm and a second parameter is a location of the storm. The method further includes providing a time before the storm impacts a recipient based on the travel speed of the storm and a track distance to the recipient location. The method further includes delivering the time before the storm impacts the location to the recipient.
