We present an innovative architecture that enables the digital
representation of original works and derivatives while
implementing Digital Rights Management (DRM) features. The
architecture’s main focus is on promoting trust within the
multimedia content value networks rather than solely on content
access and protection control. The system combines different
features common in DRM systems such as licensing, content
protection, authorization and reporting together with innovative
concepts, such as the linkage of original and derived content and
the definition of potential rights. The transmission of reporting
requests across the content value network combined with the
possibility for authors to preserve rights over derivative works
enables the system to distribute income amongst all the actors
involved in different steps of the creation and distribution chain.
The implementation consists of a web application which
interacts with different external services plus a desktop user
application used to render protected content. It is currently
publicly accessible for evaluation.
