  • Patent number: 7310729
    Abstract: A system for Digital Rights Management (DRM) license delivery is presented in which the license and encrypted content is accessed from a unique download URL address for each unit of encrypted content for each subscriber. The license is delivered only a limited number of times from each URL (typically once, but optionally more than once) and is delivered to the client system that first accesses the URL (or if more than one license delivery is authorized by the content owner or distributor) to the same or different client system that accesses the URL up to the maximum number of license delivery events authorized.. When the subscriber is ready to view the content, the subscriber clicks on the download URL to cause the browser for the subscriber client system to request the web page located at the unique URL location. In response to the request, the host system delivers a license and the encrypted content to the subscriber client system that accessed the URL.

  • Publication number: 20070025327
    Abstract: According to the invention, a content delivery network (CDN) for delivering content objects over the Internet is disclosed. The CDN includes a point of presence (POP), a content object request interface, and a routing function. At least one POP is coupled to a plurality of full-route networks. The content object request interface receives requests for content objects for delivery to a number of end users using a plurality of terminal networks. The routing function that routes content objects in at least two modes, where a first mode routes content objects based upon a first route path chosen based upon delivery efficiency, and a second mode routes at least some content objects using a second route path when at least of a portion of the first route path reaches a level of use. The first and second route paths egress to different full-route networks.
