CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A system for tracking media, comprising:
a portable tracking system being associated with the media and wirelessly transmitting status information representing a status of the media; and
a central media validation system receiving said status information transmitted by said portable tracking system and comparing said status information with a predetermined media verification criterion,
wherein said media validation system validates the media for playback if said status information complies with said predetermined media verification criterion and invalidates the media, inhibiting playback of the media, if said status information deviates from said predetermined media verification criterion.
2. The system of claim 1, wherein said portable tracking system constantly tracks the status of the media.
3. The system of claim 2, wherein said portable tracking system constantly transmits said status information.
4. The system of claim 1 , wherein said portable tracking system is coupled with the media.
5. The system of claim 1, wherein said portable tracking system is coupled with a shipping container for the media.
6. The system of claim 5, wherein said portable tracking system transmits said status information when said shipping container is opened.
7. The system of claim 5, wherein said shipping container includes a locking system to prevent unauthorized access to the media.
8. The system of claim 7, wherein said media validation system transmits an unlock signal to said locking system if said status information complies with said predetermined media verification criterion, and wherein said locking system receives said unlock signal and permits access to the media in response to said unlock signal.
9. The system of claim 7, wherein said locking system permits access to the media in response to entry of at least one of an encryption key, a release key, an enabling key, a predetermined code, and a master override key.

Hie "system of claUrnli" wherein said portable tracking system transmits said status information via a mobile telephone system.
11. The system of claim 1, wherein said portable tracking system comprises a media location system that provides location data representing a geographical location of the media, said status information including said location data.
12. The system of claim 11, wherein said media location system is selected from the group consisting of a global positioning system, a radio frequency identification system, and a global system for remote communications.
13. The system of claim 11, wherein said media validation system validates the media for playback by comparing said location data with a predetermined authorized geographical location for the media.
14. The system of claim 13, wherein said predetermined authorized geographical location comprises a preselected authorized geographical location for the media at a preselected time.

15. The system of claim 13, wherein said media validation system validates the media for playback by monitoring a time interval during which the media remains at said predetermined authorized geographical location.
16. The system of claim 1, wherein said portable tracking system includes a media usage system that provides usage data representing a number of times that the media has been played back, said status information including said usage data.
17. The system of claim 16, wherein said media usage system comprises an accelerometer.

18. The system of claim 16, wherein said media validation system validates the media for playback by comparing said usage data with a predetermined number of playback times for which the media is authorized for playback.
19. The system of claim 1, wherein said media validation system includes a database system for storing said predetermined media verification criterion.
20. The system of claim 1, wherein said predetermined media verification criterion includes a travel route that comprises a time sequence of preselected authorized geographical locations.

21. The system of claim 20, wherein said travel route includes a preselected time interval during which the media is authorized to remain at each of said preselected authorized geographical locations.
22. The system of claim 20, wherein said travel route includes a preselected number of playback times for which the media is authorized for playback at each of said preselected authorized geographical locations.

f 3. The 'system Ot mmrr/wnerem said media validation system contacts an owner of the media if said status information deviates from said predetermined media verification criterion.

24. A shipping container device for media, comprising:
a container body defining a cavity that receives the media; and
a portable tracking system being coupled with said container body and wirelessly transmitting status information representing a status of the media to a central media validation system,
wherein the central media validation system validates the media for playback if said status information complies with said predetermined media verification criterion and invalidates the media, inhibiting playback of the media, if said status information deviates from said predetermined media verification criterion.
25. The shipping container device of claim 24, wherein said portable tracking system transmits said status information when the shipping container device is opened.
26. The shipping container device of claim 24, further comprising a locking system to prevent unauthorized access to the media.
27. The shipping container device of claim 26, wherein said locking system receives an unlock signal from the media validation system and permits access to the media in response to said unlock signal, the media validation system transmitting the unlock signal to said locking system if said status information complies with said predetermined media verification criterion. 28. The shipping container device of claim 26, wherein said locking system permits access to the media in response to entry of at least one of an encryption key, a release key, an enabling key, a predetermined code, and a master override key.
29. The shipping container device of claim 24, wherein said portable tracking system comprises a media location system that provides location data representing a geographical location of the media, wherein said status information includes said location data, and wherein the media validation system validates the media for playback by comparing said location data with a predetermined authorized geographical location for the media.
30. The shipping container device of claim 24, wherein said portable tracking system includes a media usage system that provides usage data representing a number of times that the media has been played back, wherein said status information includes said usage data, and wherein the media validation system validates the media for playback by comparing said usage data with a predetermined number of playback times for which the media is authorized for playback.

Α'n©tiκyα-rop'tτaGκm-g-Hieciia^fcomprising:
wirelessly transmitting status information representing a status of the media via a portable tracking system associated with the media; and
at a central media validation system,
receiving said status information transmitted by said portable tracking system at a central media validation system;
comparing said status information with a predetermined media verification criterion;
validating the media for playback if said status information complies with said predetermined media verification criterion; and
if said status information deviates from said predetermined media verification criterion, invalidating the media; and
