The technical field,

This invention relates to the issuance of digital information via the transaction machine. In particular, this invention relates to a system and method of loading and take techniques

Transactional machines known in modern technology. For the purposes of this description transaction machine includes any device that is able to carry out transactions including transfers of funds. The most common type of transaction machine is an automated teller machine (ATM). ATM / cash machine usually used to conduct banking transactions such as cash withdrawal, transfer of funds between Bank accounts or deposits. ATMs are installed at many enterprises of retail trade and services, for example in shops, petrol stations, restaurants and bars. The owners of these enterprises often receive income from ATMs through charges for transactions via ATM. For example, if the user withdraws a certain amount of cash from the ATM, the user must pay a small fee per transaction.

If the ATM has only marginal use, recoverable income may be insufficient to justify the cost of maintaining ATM. For example, the cost of maintaining and servicing can be a major part of the monthly revenue from the ATM with low objektorientierte actions income that does not lead to a significant rise in the cost of maintenance of the ATM.

In modern technique known methods of digital audio recording. Such recording signals typically propagate on compact disks (CD) for playback on the CD player. Because speaker systems have become a standard accessory for any modern personal computer, digital recordings have also started to spread in the form of computer files. Usually computer create audio files in WAV (Waveform Audio File Format) and MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3). To play these files, your computer system can use the application to play audio files and display the appropriate music through your sound card and speakers of the computer system.

Digital recordings can be copied directly from an audio CD through a process called “ripping”. Essentially, the ripping is reading the digital information representing the audio CD, and save as an audio file which is read by the computer. Different audio file formats have different characteristics. For example, the WAV files are not subjected to compression digital version of the sample audio signal. Files RNO about one-twelfth the size of the WAV file). However, the MP3 files are files with the losses due to the fact that compression algorithms remove digital information that most people cannot hear or cannot be distinguished from other sounds. If for forming the MP3 files to use a high sampling rate, sound quality is only slightly lower than in the original audio file. However, the advantage of the small size of MP3 files plays an important role. These advantages are the ability to store more hours of audio recordings in the same amount of physical storage media, such as hard disk, RAM or flash memory card. In addition, the small size of MP3 files makes it faster to download them via a network such as the Internet.

Numerous web Internet sites offer audio files such as MP3 files for download to a personal computer. The proliferation of digital audio files has led to the development of portable computer systems, such as Diamond RIO, specially designed to load and play audio files.

Unfortunately, the technology associated with the formation of MP3 files of recordings on CD and download MP3 files from the web sites, has led to a significant spread of music piracy and mA is an unlimited number of copies of the digital files audio. Placing such pirated files on the web Internet site, it is possible without restrictions distribute pirated audio files.

To put an end to the infringement and unlimited pirate copying of digital audio, the music industry is promoting an alternative file format for storing digital records called SDMI (Secure Digital Music Initiative). Specifications for SDMI format for audio files include characteristics of compression similar to MP3 format; however, in the framework of the SDMI format developed built-in copyright protection that limit the reproduction and copying files. In addition, Microsoft has developed alternative specifications for compression and copyright protection for audio, called Windows Media player.

Because MP3 files are widely spread and the MP3 format has become the de facto standard for new file formats can be very difficult to displace MP3. The popularity of MP3 files in combination with unlimited possibilities pirated copy audio files can significantly reduce the revenue record companies and artists from the sale of music and other audio recordings. This leads to the needs of the e payments with each distribution of the MP3 file.

Distribution of audio over the Internet has opened a wide opportunity for an individual artist to achieve widespread recognition for his art without the mediation of the record company. The result was a sharp increase in the number of musical works available through the Internet. Many of them can be downloaded for free. Unfortunately, many musical works, distributed free of charge, are shoddy, amateurish, and not find a wide audience. If the artist is not known, it is very difficult to encourage people to pay money for downloading his works. The fact that most people are not willing to pay for downloading the MP3 files are not acquainted with the artist.

If in order to preview a piece of music is distributed free of charge or for a nominal fee, then later to extract revenue from such music is extremely difficult. Downloading one MP3 file, it can reproduce, copy and distribute an unlimited amount, which brings the artist no profit. There is therefore a need for a system that would allow you to get acquainted with the songs for a small fee, but does not allow users of the accounts, instead of CD's or cassettes, the user must have a PC. Although the cost of personal computers has dropped significantly over the last two decades, computer, and still much more expensive CD player. Portable audio players, such as Diamond RIO, designed to play music regardless of the PC; however, they still need from time to time to connect to a PC to download it the next portion of the MP3 files. There is therefore a need in the new system, audio distribution, which the user could get by without a computer.

Modern ways of delivering audio, visual, print and other informative materials also suffer from disadvantages. There is therefore a need for an improved method of content delivery these informative materials.

In Fig.3 shows a diagram of the accounts to which access provides an illustrative ATM 10 to distribute user payments. Because the ATM 10 is connected during operation to the main banking system, ATM / cash machine 10 is able to write-off custom payment from the user's account for the issuance of digital information. Illustra is a user in the device 20 card reader. Account number contains data representing an organization that supports the user's account. Examples of cards, suitable for use, according to some variants of implementation of the present invention include credit cards, Bank cards, debit cards, trading card, smart card or any other removable media on which to store the information of the account or user and/or data stored expressing means. Illustrative ATM / cash machine 10 communicates with the computer of the financial transactions that contain the main banking system (host) or is able to contact her to confirm the user entered PIN to authorize the transaction requested by the user through an ATM. If the PIN is verified and the transaction is authorized, in accordance with the message(s) send(s) by the ATM 10, the main banking system will charge user fees from the user's account in accordance with the requested cash withdrawal and/or digital information. Transaction fees or other fees for services provided by the machine, can also be debited from the user's account. Alternatively, according to the previously discussed options osushestvleniya user data can then be used by a local or remote computer to identify the user and/or the relevant account information.

The issue most digital information is limited to the copyright owner. Usually the copyright owner requires fees or royalties for copying, display, public performance or other delivery of the work. The payment amount may vary depending on how the author allows you to use the work. For example, if the work is an audio recording, the fee for a single audio file is played in the restaurant can be much less than the fee for the issuance of audio file on portable media that can be copied an unlimited number of times. Therefore, illustrative variant implementation of the present invention provides a tracking method for issuing digital information and the transfer of appropriate license fees to the licensing entity, the source of digital information and/or other entities authorized to accept payments. In addition, to determine the payment you can use the stored information concerning the nature, location, size, condition of contract, or other information concerning the organization, which has a cash machine. For example, the fee for the music file in small who ate other types of audio files, documents, images, movies, audio and video files and effects on the payment type for each viewing.

Illustrative ATM 10 has the ability to write custom payment from the account 50 user when each issue of digital information. User payments can be translated into a shared Bank account 54 operator of the ATM 10. Translations of user payments can be made either immediately after each issuance or periodically, when the ATM 10 transfers data relating to the several payments made on credit cards of different users on the computer for financial transactions, such as payment center, which is designed to replenish accounts and write-offs of relevant actors.

License fees for downloading the digital information from a source of digital information can be translated in a similar way. The ATM 10 can generate messages or may include data, in accordance with which the financial operations computer must transfer the license payment from the account 54, which corresponds to the operator of the ATM 10, the source 32 of the digital information. Such translation can be performed through the main banking system, or cher the new operations. Such transfers can be done at every boot or periodically, for package downloads, carried out during the preceding period of time.

According to the alternative implementation of the ATM 10 is equipped with input devices, which include the terminal that identifies a user ID and password to use when connecting via one or more networks with a source 32 of the digital information. The user ID and password allow the ATM 10 to access the source 32 of the digital information and to download the digital information. The source 32 of the digital information all tracks download, the corresponding user ID, and periodically replenish the account 54 corresponding to the operator of the ATM.

Alternatively, for some types of digital information can be written off from the account of the institution where you installed ATM, or from the account of the operator of the institution. This is useful in cases where the use associated with digital information, as indicated in the reports of transactions received from the ATM and/or based on the stored data, is a public reproduction or performance of a work in the institution. Of course, you can use the copyright of digital information may require, to license fees were paid in each issue of the digital information to the user, or whenever the public reproduction, or performance. ATM / cash machine 10 or other connected computer is able to record each issue of the digital content and the character of a manufactured issue. Illustrative ATM is also able to transfer the license fees associated with each issue, the source 32 of the digital information or other licensing entity 52 through PC financial transactions. This translation can be performed, for each issuance or intermittently for package deliveries.

According to the alternative implementation of the ATM 10 has the ability to transfer records of the issuing source of digital information, or licensing to a subject via the Internet or another network. The source 32 of the digital information or the licensing entity 52 may then deduct or collect license fees from the account that corresponds to the user, the operator of the ATM operator institutions or relevant subject.

For digital information, which contains a means of copy protection, or other technological measures to restrict access to protected distribute remedies and to charge user fees, which match up or other action provided for included protection. For example, the ATM 10 may provide the user with an option to license restrictions on the use of song files, such as unlimited or limited copying, end date or other attributes of the audio file that defines the order of copying or use of the audio file. For example, protective equipment, used in some embodiments of the invention, can limit the copying of digital content so that it can only be played on a portable computing device on which it is originally delivered. Other means can restrict copying, preventing the transference of the digital content or any copy in digital form from the medium or device on which it was originally delivered. Other means can restrict copying, limiting the use of digital content to a specific time period or a specific number of acts playing. Of course, you can use additional or alternative approaches depending on the system and the digital content is selected authentication type selected remedies. ATM can also provide license or other payments source of digital information or licensing entity.

Alternative implementation can be used in combination with systems that store information related to specific users. Such systems can be used to map the identity of the user data marketing, and customer preferences. Such information may include separate categories: music, videos, books or other materials, or products which may be provided and/or are of interest to the individual user. ATM / cash machine can automatically provide the user with choices, formed according to the relevant information about preferences. Alternatively, such information can be used to automatically provide the user with digital files, output visual and audio or other output signals at any time, when the user operates the cash machine, connected to the system. For example, when the ATM is used as a jukebox with automatic change disks, it can automatically display the signs that correspond love yantam the invention, the user may be undesirable, to access the financial account was carried out each time for the decommissioning of a relatively small amount in the payment of digital information. In such cases, the system may be configured so that the user was required to produce a “minimum purchase”. This may be the amount sufficient to cover the costs of access to the account, for example, from 10 to 20 dollars. This amount is credited to the prepayment of content associated with the user. Account account prepaid, specifying the amount of credit associated with the user or a user's account is stored in one or more data storage devices. This information on the loan can be stored locally on the smart card or other product, machine or remotely on a computer such as a PC financial transactions, can be accessed by the ATM. For example, in some embodiments, the exercise amount can be credited to the licensing or other organization. Alternative financial operations computer can conduct direct debit pre-payment of a user on its use and direct payments relevant actors. The amount of funds associated with the prepaid account may umasou system it is beneficial to use when the fees charged for each transaction digital file, small, for example in the case of audio files. This provides the system operator, the licensing entity or other entity of winning on the course in the allocated funds.

In order to prevent unauthorized copying of digital information, subject to the issuance of, or limit it, illustrative embodiments of the present invention provide a programmable during operation to change the attributes of the digital information before it is delivered to copy to removable media or computing device. For example, with regard to digital audio files, the processor of the ATM contains a device that can be embedded into a digital ID or certificate in the audio file, which is copied to a portable digital audio player user or other personal computing device. Such certificate may optionally contain an encrypted digital signature that can be used to detect unauthorized file changes.

Portable audio player can play the audio file lionin the audio player. In addition, a portable audio player can play the audio file only if the digital signature confirms the authenticity of the audio file. These attributes limit the playback file a personal audio player user. The audio file will not work on other personal audio device that is associated with a different certificate or ID. Of course, the same principles can be used to refer to files that are loaded by the ATM for storage in a local storage device when the file is subject only to play on ATM, but does not transfer to other devices.

According to a possible alternative implementation of the ATM can during the operation of the programming so that it allowed the subject, licensing digital content, to register the user to the first issue of digital content. During registration user is assigned a unique license code, which you can use in the future when purchasing digital content. ATM is able to implement the license code in each file downloaded to the user. ATM / cash machine can be programmed during operation to the next is l license code.

For example, the license code can be entered manually using the input device 16, to read from the card through the device 24 card reader to download to a portable computing device 38 user to accept from another source and/or to compare with other data relating to the user. ATM can confirm the license code by contacting the licensing entity. If the license code is correct and/or in good condition, the ATM will be able to give the user additional digital information with a built-in license code.
