NEWPORT BEACH, CA | Posted on February 21st, 2007
The patented technology generally relates to accessing data through the submission of a product identification and computer specific information to a remote station. The remote station sends an encrypted key that is stored on the computer and provides access to the data. This technology can be used by software and other products to help deter the distribution of illegal copies. Other aspects of the technologies generally relate to accessing clear data, and encrypted data via an identification label. Once decrypted, the clear and decrypted data are combined to activate software programs, and other files.
