The secure selection of at least one uniquely visually rendered media content stream(s) by a receiver of streams may allow enhanced fingerprinting of broadcast media content. The stream(s) may be visually rendered, and fingerprint marks inserted, using the preprocessing techniques of explicit insertion, implicit insertion, and object modification.

Methods of authorizing a computer license


Systems and methods use features of an inode's or file identifier's (id) assignment, uniqueness and randomness, to fingerprint an end user device or system for authorization of a license. During the installation process of an operating system on an end user device certain directories and files created, that remain in place for the life of the installation, result in inodes or file ids that will be largely random as they depend, for example, on which files are installed and in what order their installation takes place.

Deduplicated data distribution techniques


In connection with a data distribution architecture, client-side “deduplication” techniques may be utilized for data transfers occurring among various file system nodes. In some examples, these deduplication techniques involve fingerprinting file system elements that are being shared and transferred, and dividing each file into separate units referred to as “blocks” or “chunks.” these separate units may be used for independently rebuilding a file from local and remote collections, storage locations, or sources.

Identification of changed broadcast media items


Small changes in a broadcast version of a base media item can be identified by performing a multi-level comparison of digital fingerprints. A fingerprint of a base media item is compared to a fingerprint of a media broadcast to determine whether a media item embedded in a broadcast is likely, to a first level of certainty, to be the base media item.
