"Numly assigns Numly Numbers (Electronic Serial Numbers/ESNs) for all things digital. These unique identifiers enable rights statements to be associated with digital content as well as third-party, non-repudiation measures for proof of copyright via real-time verifications.
Numly Numbers are simple to generate and serve as an electronic timestamp of submission. They also allow you to track who is viewing your content and when it is accessed, monitor ratings, and can be used as permalinks ie. http://go.numly.com/27200-060121-189140-97! Another cool outcome of Numly is that your copyrighted content is consolidated no matter where you publish your work. We provide authors and artists with a dynamic Numly Page (or N-Page) that tracks all digital works".
