a customer who buys and reads a wide range of consulting company reports on a subject may determine that six of them are particularly useful and that packaging those six together provides added value (e.g., saving someone else the time and effort of finding them). The customer packages those six reports in his own secure digital container, with his own set of rules (e.g., prices) for access. Importantly, those rules are over and above the rules specified by each of the individual reports, which remain "enclosed" in their own (sub)containers. Someone who buys the collection must obtain (i.e., pay for) all necessary rights, including the rights to the collection, and the rights to any of the individual reports. Super-distribution thus enables a chain of value-adding activities, while respecting the rights and restrictions imposed by all the content owners.
