The World Beyond Digital Rights Management (Paperback)
The rapid advances in digital technology mean that digitised content is now readily available to most people. Content owners and commercial stakeholders face a constant battle to protect their intellectual property and commercial rights. Jude Umeh outlines the issues behind this battle, current solutions to the problem and looks to a future beyond digital rights management: media, technology and DRM; stakeholders and industries; rights, models and issues; DRM technologies; DRM standards; Enterprise DRM (ERM); and future trends in DRM. Content creators, law makers and businesses must learn to work together with end-users in order to harness the fantastic opportunities for a step change in global cultural evolution, and a stake in the evolving digital content economy.
