Mission/market strategy (in their own
words)

DeskGate
has created the first secure electronic publishing and document
delivery system with
portable e-Commerce, persistent copyright Protection, and multimedia
enabled interactive
content. Dubbed ‘the Internet’s Traveling Salesman’ by the media, the
‘VIApublisher’
electronic content container has everything necessary to conduct an
electronic commerce transaction on board.


VIApublisher can carry movies,
books, magazines,
newspapers, music, and catalogues. The product knows the price and
terms of its contents
and protects them from unauthorized tampering and copyright
infringement while preserving
the purchaser’s right to access the contents for repeated personal use.
VIApublisher can
be passed from computer to computer via e-mail acting like roving
billboards as they move
from person to person.


When it’s time to buy, the VIA
perks up and collects
the payment or use information directly from the purchaser and knows
exactly where to
deliver the payment or use information. When the transaction is
finished, VIA returns to
its ‘traveling salesman’ state. The purchaser reads their choice of
magazine or newspaper,
watches a film or listens to CD quality music and decides to pass it on
to friends.


The VIA moves on to the next
transaction, leaving
the goods safely locked to the purchaser’s computer. The product is
sold as transaction
based services and/or software.

Tomorrow,

idea? e-mail us now  your votes
