  • Publication number: 20070005766
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product for implementing application level policies in an operator network, while managing the exchange of data packets between users and service providers during the provisioning of premium data services. The system and method intermediates between a user and a service provider (who may be an enterprise, content provider, an application provider or a partner portal). The system and method enforces access control, prompting, redirection and inline context injection dynamically while the service is being delivered, and generates metering records for billing purposes. The system and method allows the service providers to provide various external services. Such external services include transcoding service, age verification service, streaming service, recommendation service, advertisement service, fulfillment aware charging, dynamic pricing, real time events, and messaging services.

  • Publication number: 20070006327
    Abstract: A system and methodology for dynamically enabling services related to digital content. The services are provided to mobile users on their mobile devices by a mobile service provider. The mobile devices may have different operating systems which may be proprietary operating systems and open operating systems. A mobile user downloads a client on his mobile device. The client implements a policy-based workflow on the digital content. Thereafter, the mobile user downloads digital content. Where a Java enabled mobile device is used, a wrapper is downloaded with the digital content. The mobile user initiates a request to use the digital content. The mobile service provider dynamically generates a set of options for the mobile user. Each option provides a service related to the digital content. The mobile service provider delivers a service according to the option selected by the mobile user.

  • Patent number: 7089594
    Abstract: The present invention provides a technique for implementing digital rights management for digital content that can be used on Java enabled mobile devices. It enables the controlled usage of the digital content on the mobile device after it is downloaded from a content provider. This is achieved by a mobile service provider that generates a license based on a rights workflow and applies charging policies to prevent the downloaded digital content from being forwarded to other users. The digital content cannot be used without the license. The digital content can be delivered to the user either through combined or separate delivery, depending on whether the license is sent along with the digital content or not. On expiry of the license, the user is prompted for updating the license. The user can then use the digital content once the license is updated.

The present invention enforces access control, prompting, redirection and inline context injection dynamically while the service is being delivered, and generates metering records for billing purposes. Prompting enables notifications and taking inputs from the user while the user accesses chargeable content or when the sharing of user data (profile or choice) occurs between the network and service provider.
