For a while now I have been on the notify subscription list of this wonderful new application called MyOws which stands for My Original Works. It sounded very promising which prompted me to sign up for it in the first place. Last week I finally got around to testing it, now that it has launched in Beta testing phase.
Let me begin by mentioning that I love the interface of the website. It is clean, crisp and blue. I love the flow of the information provided and how simple and effective everything is. Above all I love their mascot [I will admit, that is what grabbed my attention when I first visited the site many months ago and I recently found out, it was created by Von Glitschka]. Using white space effectively even in the darker panels, what this site does is manage to make you feel at ease and confident enough to sign up and start uploading your work without nagging questions and doubts.
The idea is simple. You create a free account and with that you get 200MB free space to upload your files that you desire to copyright. It is essentially a timestamp that you get [the website claims that not even their staff can tamper or alter your files. Even you can't!] Once uploaded, you cannot alter the file in any form. You must delete and re-upload if you wish to change a detail in it or simply want to copyright a fresher version of your file. That in itself is a pretty air-tight copyrighting solution. You can upload images, video, sound, text, vectors, html, code, animations and so much more. Which means everytime you create something from your head and heart, you better head over here and copyright it the same day.
Safety and security is well thought of with secure servers doing the transfers and files kept on two geographically separated servers identified with a unique hash value. You can not only upload and copyright your works, you can also open infringement cases and track their progress and outcome via your account. The guys at MyOws are in testing phase and the website promises many more exciting new features in the works.
