Open File Format

Open File Format, or OFF, Format is a distributed file system in which data is stored in encrypted, randomised blocks scattered across the distributed network. There is no 1:1 copy of the original data residing on any single system.

This is sometimes referred to as a brightnet.

This file format is particularly suited to public virtual environments, as it prevents copyright violations by the simple expedite of no system on the network having a copyrighted file. At best, each has a piece of one, encrypted into unrecognisability except when the whole network is together.

No different really than an icon. Tied to the data in the file, when a hypercard changes hands, the file changes computers.
