Brightnets and Copyright

This is a little convoluted, but there is a movement afoot to create so-called "brightnets". A darknet is a file-sharing network that stores no personal information and is therefore anonymous. A brightnet removes any need for secrecy, as you'll see in a moment.

Data is stored in a number of blocks, which individually act as a sort of white noise, in that an individual block contains no copyrightable information. In fact, blocks can be used simultaneously in many different files. A file is reconstituted from a number of these white noise blocks. This reconstitution takes place on the terminal end (i.e. on your computer rather than the central server), like iTunes sharing, where the information cannot be copied onto your computer.

This is an interesting idea, and I wonder in what way this methodology could be applied to composition....
