Digital Rights Management, or DRM for short, is a much-discussed topic nowadays. The main reason for this is that DRM technology is often mentioned in the context of protection of digital audio and video content, for example to avoid large scale copying of CDs and DVDs via peer-to-peer networks in the Internet. However, DRM technology is much more than a simple copy protection technology. It is one of the enabling technologies that open the way to secure distribution and exchange of digital content over open digital infrastructures such as the Internet.
