3.2.1 Abstract Data Model

This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that a client implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This document does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with that described in this document.

The Desktop Clipboard Protocol provides the means for clients to request the SharedClipbookData information from the server, including enumerating the shared clipbooks and retrieving the clipbook data.

A client application can render this information in a form visible to the user, allow the user to copy the clipbook contents into their local system clipboard, or allow the user to save the clipbook contents.
