Wireless DRM
Posted on 10-Mar-2003 18:38 | Tags Filed under: Glossary



Wireless DRM refers to a combined network and terminal based rights protection solution, that enables controlled and secure usage and distribution of digital content. Digital content includes anything that offers entertainment, information or education, such as music, video, games, marketing promotions, wallpaper, ringtones and images. Digital rights are a set of rules, or copyright that control how this content can be consumed and terms of usage. The real value of protected wireless content lies in the rights because these control how it can be rendered and revenue generated from it. The fixed internet and wireless networks have revolutionised the way people communicate, access and share information. DRM solutions are a key enabler of legalising the global information highway. As fixed and wireless DRM markets develop and mature, DRM solutions will ultimately be at the core of all digital content and multimedia services, enabling a seamless convergence of access across all networks and devices. The goal of a DRM solution is to keep honest people honest and not infringe upon their freedom to access and share content, while at the same time making it difficult for pirates to create illegal copies and distribution systems. DRM should be transparent so that the end-user does not know it is there in the sense of being impeded in their ability to access content and data services.
