The media player as recited in Claim 18, further comprising an authenticator to provide secure communication and secure transactions between the media player and the second media player.
Patent/Application # 6282653
This prior art covers most or all the aspects of the application that concern royalty payment. Also, the methods described are immediately and obviously applicable to "offline" transactions in the definition of the application. (The first and second devices in fact form a network between each other for the duration of each communication transfer, so "offline" is with respect to the parts of the described method that are not the two devices, making the distinction irrelevant in this comparison.)
