2.0 Digital Rights Management (DRM)
3.0 Functional Architecture of DRM
- Intellectual Property (IP) Asset Creation and Capture: The management of content creation so that it can be easily dealt. This includes assertion of rights when content is first created (or reused and extended with appropriate privileges to do so) by various content creators/providers.
- Intellectual Property (IP) Asset Management: The management of facilitating the trade of content. This includes acquisition of content from creators into an asset management system. The trading systems need to manage the descriptive metadata and rights metadata (e.g., parties, usages, payments, etc.).
- Intellectual Property (IP) Asset Usage: The management of usage content once it has been traded. This includes supporting constraints over traded content in specific access devices /software.
- Rights Validation –for assurance of the fact that content being created from existing content includes the rights to do so.
- Rights Creation - to allow rights to be assigned to new content, such as specification of the rights owners and applicable usage permissions.
- Rights Workflow - to allow for content to be processed through a series of workflow steps for review and/or approval of rights (and content).
- Repository functions - to enable the access or retrieval of content in potentially distributed databases and the access/retrieval of metadata. The metadata covers Parties, Rights and descriptions of the Works as described in Information architecture of DRM.
- Trading functions - to enable the allocation of licenses to parties who have traded agreements for rights over content, including payments from licensees to rights holders (e.g., royalty payments). In some cases, the content may need to go through fulfilment operations to satisfy the license agreement. For example, the content may be encrypted/protected or packaged for a particular type of usage environment.
- Permissions Management - to enable the usage environment to comply the rights associated with the content. For example, if the user only has the right to view the document, then printing will not be allowed.
- Tracking Management - to enable the monitoring of the usage of content where such tracking is part of the agreed to license conditions (e.g., the user has a license to view a content only 5 times). This module may also need to interoperate with the trading system to track usage or to record transactions if there is payment due for each usage.
