So technically, such a "deeplink.txt" file (I'm smashing it down to

wouldn't have to be visible to browsers or other web clients -- it

out in public view makes it explicit to smarter clients exactly what's 
being protected.

So who will be the first to write an Apache module to support this? :-)

There is something much more easier I think. But maybe I'm wrong !!!

All the browsers now send the REFERER, so you just need to control before with a script if the link is a Universal internal link or if it's come from an other website.

So when you click on a trailer with .mpg (or whatever), the server could verify if it's come from universal web pages.

my 2 cents.
