Abstract

The general problem that we address aims at studying commercial electronic publishing over open networks such as the Internet in terms similar to traditional publishing, i.e., by using existing technical and legal means in order to promote electronic publishing in a global electronic market while protecting its actors. Towards this goal we propose a global approach to commercial electronic publishing by the means of a minimal infrastructure through a framework (Hep), based on the mobile object (agent) paradigm. Such an approach should make it possible to take into account the needs that are common to the field of electronic publishing in a commercial global networked market which is competitive and untrusted by essence. The use of mobile objects or agents in this context represents a new and original direction whose major advantage is to give a total autonomy to the electronic document while guaranteeing and enforcing a "self-controlled" safe and secure usage of its content at all time. Such an infrastructure should consequently support and encourage the commercial exchange and dissemination (i.e., superdistribution) of electronic documents in the broad sense on global information networks such as the Internet.
