This white paper aims to demystify much of the technology and partisan vendor noise to provide an overview of the market conditions. Senior executives have important strategic decisions to make and the options are varied. Without a defacto standard and with multiple standard and with multiple service delivery options; selection and implementation of DRM will have a lasting impact on the long-term success of any content service.

DRM means different things depending on where you sit within the delivery cycle and the motivation behind its deployment.
