A web-based rights management system for developing trusted value
Document typeConference report
Rights accessOpen Access
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.
