Patent #10,257,301 – Systems and methods providing a drive interface for content delivery Categories: Patent

Systems and methods which provide a drive interface for delivery of various content to consumers of the content are described. Embodiments provide access to content shared by a content provider using an interface emulating a disk drive local to the consumer. In operation the user accesses content shared by a content provider using a drive interface content delivery platform of embodiments herein as if the user were accessing content on a local drive. The drive interface of embodiments is branded in correspondence to the content or content provider. Drive interface content delivery platforms of embodiments employ a “push” type content delivery technique whereby content is actively delivered to the consumers under the control or at the initiation of the content provider. Embodiments may additionally provide push delivery of content through web based interfaces and application interfaces.
