Description

Tiki Wiki is a content management system. And it can be used to distribute text (but also images, music etc.) to the world.

In Germany, there is no copyright as it exists in the US. Instead, authors have inalienable rights to their works (which cannot be sold or transferred) and for the usage royalties apply.

There is a system of collecting those royalties like VG Wort. If a publishing house reprints text that are declared by the author, publishers pay to VG Wort, they pool all those royalties and pay their members on the basis of the amount published by an author.

For several years now, VG Wort has a system for online texts (METIS). In order to participate, web sites must include "count marks" together with the texts. The author requests (personal) count pixels from VG Wort, and the website must be programmed so that it deliveres those pixels.

In essence, such a count pixel is just an img loaded from VG Wort's servers, a transparent GIF with 1x1 pixels in size. The author gets them in form of HTML lines like this, for example:

<img src="http://vg08.met.vgwort.de/na/e1c16c290fc545d8809d5990b2295aa6" width="1" height="1" alt="">


There is one specific pixel per text, not per author.

It would make things vastly easier if Tiki could automate the process. Pixels get handed out to authors either als a PDF or as a spreadsheet table (CSV...).

A system could be devised where a Tiki user would upload such a CSV, and a plugin could be integrated into a content page (article or wiki). Less sophisticated, the user would indicate a "text ID" to identify the text. A more sophisticated system would, when the plugin gets called, look up if the calling content already has a pixel assigned, and if not, assign one and track the relationship of pixels with contents and then playout the respective pixel alongside with the content.

This system could also inform the user if the amount of pixels is less than the amount needed by current online content and create nice reports :-)

Systems for collecting royalties ("copyright collectives") exist in every country, so this would not only be useful for German Tiki users, but for practically everyone that shells out copyrighted texts larger than 2K...

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
