Paradiso is a prototype of a system that lets consumers contact content providers to buy songs and videos—and to buy optional content-resale rights. In essence, the scheme would turn customers into content distributors, provide wider reach, and free up content providers' bandwidth. However, such an architecture requires strict security precautions and interoperable digital rights management standards among player manufacturers and content providers.
