What isMicrosoft DRM

Microsoft’s DRM is a solution for protecting and distributing digital content over the Internet. It enables license issuance, site configuration, and management, as well as publication of files in an encrypted format. Windows Media Player now requires encrypted files before playing as of version 6.2 and directs users to the relevant website for registration if files are not authorized with a license on their computer.

One thing to keep in mind is that the rights to play media files and the actual files themselves are separate entities. The machine, not the content, is given the license. Without a valid license on the machine, the content cannot be played on another machine if distributed to someone else.

There are multiple business models that can be employed with Rights Manager, including subscriptions, rentals, and demos. For example, a song title may be kept active as long as a subscription is active or may be programmed to end after being played a given number of times or on a specified date.
