P1817 - Standard for Consumer-ownable Digital Personal Property

The purpose of the DPP standard is to create a supplier- and platform-independent form for copyrighted works for sale to consumers as the digital equivalent of tangible personal property; providing significant barriers to counterfeiting or to ripping and illegal file sharing, while enabling consumers to privately own, use, and share their purchases without sacrificing the autonomy and privacy that they associate with personal property ownership.This standard describes methods, algorithms, protocols, and governance mechanisms involved in the cryptographic protection of copyrighted works from public redistribution and in the preservation of consumer autonomy and privacy.
