The free protection of your creations in 4 steps
In mankind’s history, the dissemination of ideas and creations has never been as fast as at the beginning of this century. Creations are exchanged on the web at incredible speed. This rapid sharing of ideas give creators new edge and new methods to improve or commercialize their creation.
This speed of exchanges also brings new challenges for creators… like keeping the rights of their creations.
In response to these new challenges My Rights Keeper, a Canadian company, provides protection, and the following advantages:

- Each files obtain their own digital signature

- MRK’s Premium Lockbox disk space are pretty generous
- MRK permit to link multiple authors to a creations

How it works ? Only 4 simple steps to achieve the protection of your creations.
1 – Create your free MRK account, and you will be able to create a Lockbox™ for all your projects
2- Buy a Premium Lockbox™ in relation to your project size
3- Add all types of files, whether it is your working files, legal documents or your finished product
4 – Once sealed, the content of your Lockbox™ will be time-stamped and cannot be modified. It may now serves to protect and defend your copyright.
MRK’s vault can contain two types of Lockbox™ to protect your intellectual Propriety and defend your copyright. You can always access your vault to consult your Lockbox™. Access to your vault is secured and meets the highest industry Standards to guarantee the integrity of your creation.
Standard MRK Lockbox™ is free and unlimited, you can create as many as you like, and offers you a quick response to protect your intellectual property. When you upload your file, we automatically compute the digital signature (link to explanation). To protect your intellectual property, you can simply re-upload your file in a new Standard MRK Lockbox™. Then you compare the digital signature with the one shown on your certificate, or on your original Standard MRK Lockbox™. If both digital signatures are identical, it is the same file! You can confirm, in all certainty that the file you present was recorded on MRK’s servers, the date and time indicated on your certificate or in the original Standard MRK Lockbox™.
Attention: Your original file is not stored on MRK’s servers, only the digital signature is. Consequently, it is crucial that you keep an unmodified version of your creation. Otherwise, it will be impossible to establish consistency between your creation and MRK’s database. A suggestion for optimal protection: save your original creation on multiple disks, or USB keys, and keep copies in separate locations.
The MRK’s Premium Lockbox™ are the best protection you can find on the web to protect and distribute your creation. These allow you to include everything you want in connection with your creation. Here are few examples: different versions of the same creation, different parts of a global creation (songs of a disc, chapters of a book, etc.) contracts related to the creation, or any other items you deem relevant. As long as the total size of files saved does not exceed the maximum saving capacity of the selected package there is no limit to the number, or the type, of files you record.
You can take all the time you need to fill up your MRK’s Premium Lockbox™. At any time, you can access your vault and view the creations included in your Premium Lockbox™, no matter what if your Premium Lockbox™ is open or closed. As long as the Premium Lockbox™ is open, you can change its content (add or remove files) without any restrictions. All items stored in a MRK’s Premium Lockbox™ get an individual digital signature.
After you uploaded all important elements of your creation, you can close your MRK’s Premium Lockbox™. It is at this moment, and only then, that MRK’ protection is activated. Once closed, the Premium box MRK is inviolable, meaning that it is impossible (even for us) to change the content or the time of registration.
After closing your Premium Lockbox™, you can safely disseminate your creation. You know that in case of illegal or unauthorized use of your creation, you can defend your copyright and intellectual property.
Both types of MRK’s Lockbox™ allow multi-authors entry. You can link several MRK members to one Lockbox™. On request, we will send you, by mail, a hard copy of your Lockbox™ and all its contents on a CD/DVD. A certificate of registration will accompany the disk copy. The registration certificate takes the form of an affidavit. Being admitted as evidence in court, the affidavit is a sworn statement made before a witness authorized by law officer. MRK’s certificates are produced by MBM law firm which is internationally recognized for its services in intellectual property protection that can defend your case in 190 countries.
