The Web would be an amazingly profitable distribution channel and revenue source for digital versions of text-based and graphical works-of-art; but control over intellectual property rights, content management, and copyright compliance pose significant challenges in our Internet-connected world where it's simple to duplicate and easy to pirate digital works-of-art.
Seizing opportunities to exploit the vulnerabilities of distributing digital media, device manufacturers and digital content aggregators have quickly colonized their own "publishing" ecosystems. Their solutions often emulate Apple's closed and controlled iTunes music store model. Their controlling interests, along with proprietary computing formats and digital rights management (DRM) systems, create problems for copyright owners and consumers who want to retain their publishing choice and independence. Consequently, millions fear losing traditional publishing freedoms, along with revenues and profits, to the agendas of content aggregators and device manufacturers.
The solution is to adopt intellectual property rights licensing just as the music and movie industries have, while offering your content as a service where digital distribution DOES NOT preclude physical consumption.
Today; the "Googles," "Amazons" and "Apples" of the world often control how digital publications are priced and distributed. Micro-licensing returns these freedoms to you, the rightful owners and publishers of such works-of-art.
