  • Patent number: 8868861
    Abstract: In an information recording apparatus, when it is determined to perform a copy process, a copy processor copies content data cached in a first storage section to an information recording medium as copy destination. A process-result sender sends, to a copy-count management server, a result of the copy process. A cached-data abandoning unit abandons the content data cached in the first storage section if information regarding an allowable number of copies on which the result of the copy process has been reflected represents that a next copy process is disallowed.

  • Patent number: 8701629
    Abstract: There is provided a combustion state detecting apparatus capable of detecting combustion-state abnormality in an internal combustion engine. A comparison timing is set to be advanced in terms of the rotation angle of the crankshaft of an internal combustion engine with respect to the ending timing of an electric quantity based on an ion that occurs when ignition is performed normally through a predetermined ignition signal among the plurality of ignition signals; in the case where, as a result of the comparison between the detected ending timing of an electric quantity based on an ion and the comparison timing, the ending timing is advanced in terms of the rotation angle of the crankshaft with respect to the comparison timing, it is determined that the combustion based on ignition through the predetermined ignition signal is abnormal.

  • Publication number: 20120200951
    Abstract: A duplication device is provided. When content is duplicated by recording, in a recording medium of a recording destination, the same content as content recorded in a recording medium of a duplication source, even if a reading speed is slower than a writing speed, the duplication device can reduce a duplication time as much as possible. The duplication device 100 reads a reading portion of content from an optical disc D in which content is recorded, and in parallel to this reading, downloads a transmission portion which includes a portion of content other than the reading portion, from a distribution server 200, and records the read reading portion and the downloaded transmission portion in the hard disc 106 at a speed faster than a speed of reading the reading portion.

  • Publication number: 20120099840
    Abstract: The terminal device is configured to be able to reproduce and record contents, and performs reproduction and recording of an optical disc of high recording density, such as a BD. The offer information receiving unit receives the offer information, indicating a condition for performing the managed copy defined by the AACS, from the managed copy server. The offer information transmitting unit transmits the offer information to the server device in order to register the offer information with the server device. By this, the offer information of plural contents can be managed by the server device, and plural users can appropriately share the offer information. Therefore, it becomes possible to know the offer information of a disc, in advance, without actually buying the disc.
