Owing to the meteoric growth of Internet and cyberspace technology, digital data (images, audios, videos and datasets) can be seized easily. On one hand, this helps people to share digital merchandise with others. Contrarily illegal copies are produced and distributed with little efforts. To deter piratism and protect the proprietorship of digital products, digital carbon copy technology is introduced. A carbon copy is an imperceptible copy of the digital data maintained before selling, which can be detected later for vendee/vendor identification, ownership proof, traitor tracing and so forth. Vendee vendor carbon copy algorithm is designed to hinder clients from unjustly distributing copies of digital content. In this paper, an anonymous and interactive Carbon Copy Algorithm (CCA) is proffered, which is designed to be impartial and efficient. To solve the unbinding problem and the vendees’ right problem, operations of carbon copy generation and digital content selling are performed by a Trusted Third Party in the proposed scheme. Vendees and vendors have equal rights and responsibilities, and computational and corresponding overhead is lessened. We show that the proposed protocol is highly accurate, secure and efficient.
