The ARDI service is an innovative service for persistent and web resolvable identification of rights and rights declarations offered by mEDRA.
mEDRA is a brand of Ediser Srl, the service company of the Italian Publishers Association. We operate since 2003 as DOI Registration Agency and provide a variety of other services: technology provision for the management of other Registration Agencies for standard identifiers; consultancy agency and R&D centre in the field of identification standards, metadata and e-infrastructures for the publishing industry, provision of IT, consultancy and management services in the framework of European projects focusing on digitisation, copyright and rights management in the digital age.

The ARDI service was created as the result of the R&D activities carried out in ARDITO, a EU co-funded project under Horizon2020 framework run in 2017-2018. ARDITO has launched services on the market based on identification technologies – text and video watermarking, text and image fingerprinting, cross-sector DOI technology – to create a sustainable eCopyright digital single market for creative content.
