Digital property framework

Digital property framework

The Digital Property Framework, was created to set open standards for online properties, digital rights, registration processes, rights assignments, title searches, easement certifications, and define digital property itself. These guidelines were established for general use in an open environment. The digital property rights defined here are contrasted to those defined in Digital rights management dealing directly with media content itself. The framework deals with the rights of the collaborative canvas as opposed to the rights of specifically configured content as in intellectual property rights.
