Abstract

One of the problems we see in music, video, software development and delivery is the increase of piracy. The problem is that any piece of software, music, video, data can easily copied an reproduced. Some solutions exist today but they are either easy to bypass or difficult to implement. The present disclosure is a means to use the streaming concept to listen music, watch video or install software. With this solution there is no need to store the information or music or video. The concept is the following: Instead of selling a CD or a DVD, the vendor will sell a small plastic card (with an RFID TAG,or a proc, or a chip, or any component allowing to store information (write one, read many)).
