The UnsignedPublishLicense type exposes the following members.

Public methodUnsignedPublishLicense()Initializes a new instance of the UnsignedPublishLicense class.
Public methodUnsignedPublishLicense(String)Initializes a new instance of the UnsignedPublishLicense class from a specified XrML publish-license template. 

Public propertyContentIdGets or sets the publisher-created content identifier.
Public propertyGrantsGets a collection of assigned user rights.
Public propertyLocalizedNameDescriptionDictionaryGets a collection of name and description pairs.
Public propertyOwnerGets or sets the content owner.
Public propertyReferralInfoNameGets or sets the contact name for the author or publisher of the content.
Public propertyReferralInfoUriGets or sets the contact URI for the author or publisher of the content.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSignCreates a signed PublishLicense and returns a UseLicense for the document author.
Public methodToStringReturns a serialized template created from the XrML of the UnsignedPublishLicense. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

PublishLicense defines security data about rights, users, and other security-related information. The license defines how a specific user on a specific computer can use specified rights-managed content.

The publishing process begins with the document author, who defines rights information in an UnsignedPublishLicense. Next, the authoring application calls the UnsignedPublishLicense.Sign method to create a signed PublishLicense. The signed PublishLicense can then be provided to the end-user client application which can call AcquireUseLicense to request an end-user UseLicense. The returned UseLicense then allows the client application to exercise the rights that are granted to the user.

The document author can use the UnsignedPublishLicense class either to create a signed PublishLicense, or to build and serialize a PublishLicense template.

As with other System.Security.RightsManagement types, UnsignedPublishLicense is only usable in full trust applications.
