Digital Rights Management – Part II

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Intellectual property protection has ushered in an era of technological solutions that attempt to prevent asserted rights infringement. Digital Rights Management (DRM) can be considered a response to legal requirements which criminalize the production and dissemination of technology that allows individuals to circumvent technical copy-restriction methods. Specifically, as a preventive control, DRM software usually manages the downloading of sound files, movies, and other copyrighted materials through diverse security features. Globally, DRM systems have received international legal reinforcement through the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) national implementations.
