.copy File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Content File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .copy. Files with the file extension .copy can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .copy files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .copy file?

The COPY file extension is a data format known as Sony Ericsson Protected Content File. COPY files are copy-protected files used by Sony Ericsson mobile phones for their ringtone files. The MIME type is "application/vnd.sem.mms.protected". Sony Ericsson has developed a proprietary DRM method excluded in the OMA DRM standard but supported by the Sony Ericsson DRM Packager. The DRM Packager is free software that allows third party content providers/developers to protect their content. This method consists of a proprietary Sony Ericsson DRM header added to the content. It does not feature more sophisticated DRM management such as the encryption and rights features as used with combined and separate delivery. Other protected media files created by Sony Ericsson include DCF and DM files. Files in COPY format can be opened with Sony Ericsson DRM Packager or compatible Sony Ericsson cell phone in Microsoft Windows based systems.

how to open a .copy file?

Launch a .copy file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .copy file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .copy files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .copy file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .copy file will open the correct application.

Digital Rights Management is a technology that is used in securing the distribution, promotion and sales of a digital media. It protects digital content through limited usage, like for instance in 3G, where operators and content providers need a method that will allow then to sell content without freely distributing it between devices. DRM is defined by the standards of Open Mobile Alliance (OMA). OMA DRM enables controlled consumption of digital media objects by letting content providers express usage rights like the ability to preview DRM content, to prevention of illegally forwarding downloaded DRM content from to other users, and in enabling super distribution of DRM content. Usage rights are controlled with DRM, these are defined for all types of content. Different rights from different users may be applied on the same content. DRM controls usage rights like the number of times it can be used, the period it can be used and the length of time it can be used. This kind of control enables content providers to create more subscriptions and pay-per-use models and will also stimulate mobile content based services.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .copy files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .copy. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
