FRANKFURT UNVEILING OF "HOW TO"
COMMERCIALLY IMPLEMENT DOI
Frankfurt Book Fair (October 10, 2001 9:30-12:00PM Europa Room, Hall 4.0)
Three official DOI Registration Agencies will demonstrate "How To":
- register for a DOI Prefix and apply DOIs to content
- make every hyperlink a sales opportunity
- track usage of electronic content
- protect copyright using DOI with DRM technologies
- use DOIs to combine text, images and audio for ebooks
- cross-link content on the Internet
- link to copies of publications on different servers
- point to different formats of a publication
- point to services associated with publications
DOI Registration Agencies-CrossRef (USA), Content Directions (USA) and Enpia Systems
(Korea) will unveil services that enable publishers to commercially exploit digital
intellectual property in a legal, controllable, and easy to manage way.
The demonstrations will focus on practical implementation. It is highly
recommended that key executive personnel from business, sales and marketing
departments attend at least relevant portions of this demonstration to learn how
to "Get Started" and to obtain an Information Kit with pertinent basic DOI information.
(FRANKFURT DEMONSTRATION SCHEDULE)
Publishers can now use a DOI to control, trade and sell their content
electronically while protecting copyright. The DOI is a tool for digital
commerce of content and has widening acceptance by the music, broadcast
and film industries along with interest from online news and sports media
Sharing information with partners in a value chain is essential to do business, but ownership
of information, and location of electronic files,
rights and related resources change frequently. Analogous to a bar code
that identifies an object, a DOI permanently identifies a piece of intellectual
property so it can be traded and sold independent from its physical location or URL address.
Profiting from digital content is risky business without a DOI. The DOI
puts you in control of your content. You release a DOI to your partners,
not the content. When you make a change to the content, immediately
everyone everywhere accesses only the updated information. And when you
decide to change third party service providers or upgrade your internal systems,
you can afford to do so, because all related resources, from the ISBN to the latest
review, are accessible via the DOIs.
