<Authentication of products to be exhibited>
Needless to say, the products to be listed in the online auction are created by the manufacturer. And this created product may be distributed in the above-mentioned net auction. Therefore, in this embodiment, when a manufacturer creates a product, first, information (product information) about the created product is registered in the management server 102. Although the form of registration is not particularly limited, for example, registration may be performed on a homepage operated by the management server 102.

  FIG. 6 is a diagram illustrating an example of product information. As shown in the figure, the product information includes a product ID that is an ID unique to each product, a manufacturer ID assigned to each product by the manufacturer, a product name, a product model number (manufacturer model number), and data related to this product. Is made up of the URL of the home page for publishing, the standard price, the release date of this product, and the genre to which the product belongs. In addition, each element which comprises the information regarding goods is not limited to this.

  Next, the manufacturer registers information (genuine product certification information) for certifying that the created product is a genuine product in the management server 102. As a result, the authenticity certification information of the product created by the manufacturer is registered in the management server 102.

  FIG. 3 is a flowchart of a process for registering genuine product certification information of a product created on the manufacturer side in the management server 102.

  First, the operator of the maker terminal 106 operates the pointing device 207 or the keyboard 208 of the maker terminal 106 to access the management server 102, and displays information indicating that the created product is genuine product authentication information. The CPU 201 is instructed to request the management server 102 for a GUI for registration in the management server 102.

  Upon receiving this instruction, the CPU 201 of the maker terminal 106 accesses the management server 102 and uses a GUI (genuine product certification) for registering genuine product certification information in the management server 102 as information indicating that the created product is a genuine product. Request information creation data input screen) (step S301).

  In response to this request, the CPU 201 of the management server 102 returns the requested GUI data to the manufacturer terminal 106 (step S302). This GUI data is stored in the HDD 204 of the management server 102. When a request is received from the manufacturer terminal 106, this data is read into the RAM 202 and returned to the manufacturer terminal 106.

  When receiving the GUI data, the CPU 201 of the manufacturer terminal 106 displays a screen according to the data on the display device 210 (step S303). The user of the manufacturer terminal 106 inputs the created product-specific ID (product ID) and the manufacturer model number (product number) for the product using the pointing device 207 and the keyboard 208 on the GUI. The CPU 201 waits for an instruction that the input is completed using the pointing device 207 or the keyboard 208 (step S304). When the input is completed, the CPU 201 stores the input ID number and product number data in the RAM 202. The information is stored in a predetermined recording area (step S305), and is transmitted as input information to the management server 102 (step S306).

  The CPU 201 of the management server 102 creates authentic product certification information unique to each product number using the transmitted input information (step S307). FIG. 8 is a diagram illustrating an example of genuine product certification information.

  The genuine product certification information can be viewed by any user who participates in the online auction that the product ID received from the manufacturer terminal 106, the serial number, and that this product (the product whose product ID is “M0239”) is a genuine product. It is configured by a URL of a homepage (hereinafter referred to as HP). The HP is created by the CPU 102 of the management server 102 when, for example, product information is received from the manufacturer terminal 106. The content is not particularly limited as long as the product proves that the product is genuine.

  Further, each element constituting the genuine product certification information is not limited to the same figure. The created genuine product certification information is stored in the HDD 204 of the management server 102.

  When the creation and storage of the genuine product certification information is completed, the CPU 201 of the management server 102 notifies the maker terminal 106 to that effect (step S309). For example, the homepage screen data described as “registration complete” is transmitted to the maker terminal 106 and displayed on the display device 210 of the maker terminal 106.

  Through the above processing, the authenticity certification information of the product created by the manufacturer is registered in the management server 102.

  Note that the genuine product certification information created by the management server 102 may be transmitted to the manufacturer terminal 106, and in this case, the genuine product certification information can also be managed by the manufacturer.

<Exhibition>
Next, a case where a user (owner) who owns a product puts this product for sale (lists) in an online auction will be described.

  This product is naturally generated by a manufacturer, and the product information of this product and the genuine product certification information of this product are registered in the management server 102 by the above-described processing. In addition, the management server 102 associates information (owner information) about the user who owns the product, such as name, address, age, date of purchase, etc., with the product information of the product, authenticity certification information, 102 is stored in the HDD 204.

  FIG. 7 is a diagram showing a configuration of owner information according to the present embodiment. In the figure, the owner information is composed of an ID, name, address, telephone number, date of birth, and e-mail address of the user terminal 105 unique to each owner. Each element constituting the owner information is not limited to this.

  In other words, the management server 102 manages information indicating which user owns each product (of course, a genuine product) by associating and holding product information, authentic product certification information, and owner information. Become.

  In addition, about the owner information of the first owner who purchased this product, it is necessary to access the management server 102 from the terminal device of the purchased store or the purchased homepage and register the owner information.

  In the following description, an operation to be performed by each of the terminal device 105, the management server 102, and the broker terminal 103 used by the owner in order for the owner to place a product on the online auction will be described.

  FIG. 4 is a flowchart of processing performed for performing an exhibition by each of the terminal device 105, the management server 102, and the broker terminal 103 used by the owner who sells the product.

  First, the owner instructs the CPU 201 to access an HP (homepage) for registering that an item is to be sold, which is operated by the broker terminal 103, using the pointing device 207 or the keyboard 208 of the terminal device 105. Upon receiving this instruction, the CPU 201 accesses this HP (step S401).

  Upon receiving this access, the broker terminal 103 reads the HP screen, that is, the data of the exhibition registration screen from the HDD 204 of the broker terminal 103 and returns it to the terminal device 105 (step S402).

  This exhibition registration screen is for registering, for example, an image of a product to be exhibited, an explanation for this product, owner information including a successful bid start price, an owner's pen name, and the like. If the broker terminal 103 can identify the terminal device 105 by a known technique using cookies, it is not necessary to register owner information on the exhibition registration screen. Further, the information to be registered on the exhibition registration screen is not particularly limited, but at least the minimum information that can be used for the auction needs to be registered. In this embodiment, it is assumed that at least part or all of owner information and part or all of product information are included.

  The owner registers information to be registered on the exhibition registration screen using the pointing device 207 or the keyboard 208 of the terminal device 105. When the registration is completed, the CPU 201 is instructed to transmit the registered information to the broker terminal 103 using the pointing device 207 and the keyboard 208.

  Upon receiving this instruction, the CPU 201 of the terminal device 105 transmits the registered information (exhibition information) to the broker terminal 103 (step S403). When receiving the information for exhibition, the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 determines whether or not the owner is an authorized owner of the commodity to be exhibited and whether or not the commodity to be exhibited is a genuine product. Then, part or all of the owner information included in the exhibition information is transmitted to the management server 102 (step S404).

  As described above, since the management server 102 manages the product information, genuine product certification information, and owner information of each genuine product in association with each other, when receiving part or all of the owner information from the broker terminal 103, The owner information that matches this is specified, and the product information associated with the specified owner information or genuine product certification information is transmitted to the broker terminal 103 (step S405). In this embodiment, genuine product certification information is transmitted, but product information may also be used. In order to achieve the same purpose, the CPU 102 of the broker terminal 103 transmits part or all of the product information instead of transmitting part or all of the owner information to the management server 102 in step S404. Also good.

  In addition, when owner information that matches part or all of the owner information transmitted from the broker terminal 103 to the management server 102 is not registered in the management server 102, the product associated with the matching owner information When there is no information or genuine product certification information, data indicating that is transmitted from the management server 102 to the broker terminal 103.

  When receiving the genuine product certification information from the management server 102, the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 refers to the received genuine product certification information and also refers to the exhibition information included in the exhibition information. Then, the respective parts are compared, and if the parts to be compared match with each other, it is determined that this owner is a genuine owner of the commodity to be listed and this commodity is a genuine product (step S406). For example, if the serial number included in the genuine product certification information matches the serial number included in the listing information included in the listing information, this owner is the legitimate owner of the item to be listed. Judge that the product is genuine.

  When the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 determines that this owner is a regular owner of the product to be listed and this product is a genuine product, an image of the product to be displayed and an explanation for this product Using the information contained in the exhibition information such as the starting price of a successful bid, a screen (HP screen for product sales) for buying and selling this product through an online auction is created (step S408). The URL included in the genuine product certification information transmitted from the management server 102 in step S405 is added to the HP (more specifically, the URL is displayed in the HTML describing the HP). (A tag is inserted so that it can be instructed) (step S409), and a homepage that can be viewed by any user participating in the net auction To publish (step S411).

  The HP is stored in the HDD 204 in association with part or all of the owner information included in the exhibition information and part or all of the product information.

  Since the HP creation technique and the technique for publishing the created HP are well-known techniques, a detailed description thereof will be omitted. Further, information to be included in the product sales HP is not particularly limited.

  In addition, the HP for sale of merchandise is disclosed, and the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 notifies the terminal device 105 of the disclosure by e-mail or the like (step S410).

  On the other hand, the owner information matching part or all of the owner information transmitted from the broker terminal 103 to the management server 102 is not registered in the management server 102, or the product information associated with the matching owner information Or the data indicating that the genuine product certification information does not exist is transmitted from the management server 102 to the broker terminal 103, the broker terminal 103 is in charge of this owner and / or Therefore, it is determined that this product is not a genuine product (step S406—NO). In that case, the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 transmits to the terminal device 105 data on the HP screen indicating that the item to be listed cannot be listed in the online auction (notification of registration) (step S407).

  The HP screen is not particularly limited, but may be a screen on which text indicating that the product is not an authorized owner of the product to be listed or that the product is not a genuine product may be used. The notification means is not particularly limited, and may be an email.

  As a result of the above processing, this product cannot be listed unless it is the owner of the genuine product, and only the genuine product can be listed. Only the public will be released, and a more reliable net auction can be conducted.

<A series of online auctions>
After the website for selling merchandise is released, if the user who browses the website has a willingness to purchase the merchandise introduced by the website, registration is required in advance. In this embodiment, a bidder who participates in an online auction registers his / her information corresponding to each element constituting the owner information shown in FIG. 7 in advance using the HP operated by the management server 102 in advance. As a result, the management server 102 also manages owner information of bidders participating in the online auction.

  Then, from the terminal device of the bidder who has performed this registration, it is possible to participate in the online auction using the homepage of the online auction operated by the broker terminal 103. The bidder inputs a bid amount from his terminal device and transmits it to the broker terminal 103, and the broker terminal 103 displays the bidder who bids the highest price on the product sales website. Since it is a well-known thing, description here is abbreviate | omitted.

  In the conventional net auction, the net auction is terminated because the current time has passed the deadline for bidding, and money and goods are exchanged between the seller and the successful bidder. However, in addition to this, the present embodiment is different from the conventional case in that the owner information of the successful bid product is changed from the owner information of the seller to the owner information of the successful bidder.

  FIG. 5 is a flowchart of processing performed by each of the broker terminal 103 and the management server 102 when a product exhibited by the owner is awarded by a successful bidder in an online auction.

  When an online auction for a product that the owner has exhibited through the above process is started (when a website for selling products is released), the broker terminal 103 uses the terminal device 104 used by the bidder who intends to purchase the product. A series of well-known auction processes such as displaying the pen name of the user who has received the data indicating the highest bid and transmitting the data indicating the highest price on the HP are controlled (step S601).

  Further, during a net auction, when a bidder designates the URL displayed on the HP using the pointing device 207 or the keyboard 208 of his / her terminal device 104, the CPU 102 of the terminal device 104 is designated by this URL. Accessing an access destination device (for example, the broker terminal 103), receiving homepage data provided by the access destination device to disclose that this product is genuine, and a display screen according to this data Is displayed on the display device 210 of the terminal device 104. Thereby, the bidder can recognize that this product is a genuine product and can bid with confidence.

  The CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 always keeps time, and the current time is set in advance for the successful bid for the product (the owner as an exhibitor may register it in the information for exhibition). If it exceeds (good), a process for terminating this auction is performed.

  Therefore, the CPU 201 always determines whether or not the current time being measured has exceeded the successful bid deadline (step S602). If it has exceeded, the process proceeds to step S603, and if not, the process proceeds to step S603. Return to S601 and continue the online auction.

  The net auction ends, and it is determined that a transaction between money and goods is made between the winning bidder and the owner who is the exhibitor, and the owner of each terminal device (or the terminal device on one side) Is input to the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 (step S603), the CPU 201 of the broker terminal 103 instructs the management server 102 to change the owner. Transmit (step S604). The owner change instruction includes not only instruction data for causing the CPU 201 of the management server 102 to change the owner information, but also “exhibitor owner information”, “information for identifying the successful bidder”, “commodity for which a successful bid was made” Part or all of the product information.

  The “seller owner information” and “part or all of the product information of the successful bid product” are managed by the broker terminal 103 in association with the product sales HP of the successful bid product. .

  The “information for identifying the successful bidder” is included in a cookie transmitted from the terminal device of the user, for example, because the broker terminal 103 identifies which user has accessed by a well-known technique. This information identifies this user. In any case, as long as one of the owner information of a plurality of persons managed by the management server 102 can be specified, the “information specifying the winning bidder” is not particularly limited.

  When the CPU 102 of the management server 102 receives such a series of data, it searches the HDD 204 using “exhibitor owner information” and “part or all of the product information of the successful bid product” as keys, and the matching owner Specify information and product information. Naturally, the identified owner information and product information are associated and held in the HDD 204.

  Then, the CPU 102 of the management server 102 uses the “information identifying the successful bidder” transmitted from the broker terminal 103 and the “owner information of users participating in the net auction” managed in its own HDD 204. Specify one of them. And the process which updates the owner information of the specified exhibitor to the owner information of the specified successful bidder is performed (step S605). As a result, the owner of the product for which a successful bid has been made subsequently shifts to the successful bidder.

  At this time, a method of managing the past owner's history of the successful bid product may be adopted. In addition, after the decision of the successful bidder, if the seller did not actually give up the product, the successful bidder did not pay for the product, etc. You may manage together. And for products with information that the seller did not give away the product, the seller may do the same in the future, Alternatively, it is possible to take measures such as preventing the listing of products from the seller in advance.

  The CPU 102 of the management server 102 notifies the change to the user terminal 104 of the successful bidder and the user terminal 105 of the exhibitor (step S606). This notification may be made by referring to the e-mail address included in the owner information of each of the successful bidder and the exhibitor, and sending an e-mail indicating that the owner has been changed to this address. The information to be described in this email is not particularly limited. For example, the pen name of the exhibitor and the pen name of the winning bidder may be described, and the email sent to the winning bidder includes the exhibitor's pen name. The mail sent to the seller may be a mail in which the pen name of the successful bidder is described.

  This notification may be sent to the manufacturer that manufactured this product. In this case, if the email address of this manufacturer is included in the product information, the CPU 102 of the management server 102 refers to this email address, and this address An e-mail describing the change of owner can be transmitted to the maker terminal 106. As a result, the manufacturer can always know which owner owns the product. The information to be transmitted to the manufacturer terminal 106 is not limited to this. For example, if information indicating the winning bid amount is transmitted, the manufacturer can know the distribution price of the company's product, and the value of this product. It is possible to perform various types of analysis, such as grasping.

  From the above description, the system according to the present embodiment can distribute only genuine products when distributing products in an online auction.

  In the present embodiment, the device that manages the net auction (broker terminal 103) and the device that manages the owner information, product information, and genuine product certification information (management server 102) are separate devices. It may be realized with a device.

[Second Embodiment]
In this embodiment, a password for one product is issued to the owner. This password is registered by the owner with respect to the management server 102 when the owner purchases the product. In that case, this password is also included in the owner information.

  Here, the processing performed by the broker terminal 103 when selling the product for which the password has been issued to the winning bidder through an online auction is added to the owner in step S603 in the flowchart of FIG.
