1.Digital Locking "Digital Media Distribution Method and System" 
(US Patent No. 7466823) 

This patent provides a method of locking digital content which prevents play back on unauthorized machines and devices. Claims include separating security from the content, so that content files can be shared securely over peer to peer networks. This is one of the earliest patents for securing peer to peer distributed content.

One of the more important claims in this patent is the ability to uniquely recognize a particular computer. Uniquely identifying a person’s computer is a common issue which is usually approached by saving cookies or beacons to the user’s computer or by tracking IP addresses. These are not reliable solutions as cookies are easily deleted and IP addresses easily changed. Destiny’s propriety hash code process creates a serial number that can be used to recognize the user on subsequent visits without ever saving anything to that user’s computer.

 Watermarking "Methods for Watermarking Media Data" Child Patent (Continuation)

a.US Patent No. 8300885

b.Pending US (Publication No. US-2013-0096705)

Destiny has a developed a watermarking technology which can uniquely identify the individual who originally accessed a particular song. Our watermark is unique as it can be embedded and identified rapidly, it is inaudible, it survives on air broadcast, compression and conversion to other formats and is virtually impossible to remove. Our watermarking technology is used in the Play MPE® distribution system when songs are exported or when streaming a track.  Other watermarking technologies are slow and provide a trade off between a destruction of audio quality and the ease that they can be filtered out.

When the original patent claims were granted in the US, the Company filed a set of new additional, broader claims in a continuation application in Canada and the US to further protect the technology.
