Will traditional barcodes be replaced by ID-Urls ?

The organization in charge of the current barcode standard (EAN / UPC) has already provided a close system of ID-Url: the EPC (Electronic Product Number).
Unlike ID-Urls, the EPC does not use Internet domain names. This is to not depend on the ICANN organization which secured domain names.
In doing so, the EPC requires manufacturers to go through third party organizations (GS1) for getting unique identifiers and through third-party services (databases) for connecting them to the Web.

Only ID-Url with a domain name allows to create, in an unlimited way, universal and free* identifiers.
In addition, ID-Url offers the same benefits as the EPC for identifiers traceability.

This is why we believe that, in the medium term, ID-Url will become the global standard replacing the current barcodes.

*Outside of the annual cost of reservation of an Internet domain name.
