CLink Media becomes a member of the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI)

CLink Media, Inc. has become a member of the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) – a collaboration launched by Adobe, The New York Times Company, and Twitter last year.

CLink Media intends to contribute to the CAI ecosystem by providing:

  • ISO-compliant certified archives as a content authentication tool
  • a comprehensive, interoperable metadata framework capable of facilitating content registrations, assignments, licensing, and monetary transactions for all media types, and
  • integration of CAI with WordPress CMS through CLink Media’s wpCLink plugins

Nearly a year ago, CLink Media launched an interoperable infrastructure for asserting attributions and rights, processing licenses, disseminating content, and handling attributions for online content. The distributed system is built on the Digital Object Architecture and utilizes the entity model and framework of the Linked Content Coalition.

The infrastructure evolved during the year by introducing support for Google Image Licenses, adding integration with Digital Asset Management ecosystems, and implementing content authentication by certified archive.

CLink Media will offer tools and features ranging from free personal use to enterprise-level applications for the CAI ecosystem.
