DIGITAL MUSIC ELECTRONIC COMMERCE – Addressing the super distribution model

Carlos Serrao, Joaquim Marques

Abstract

Music is from far one of the most important types of media that is being exchanged in today's open networks. Users, pushed by a growing number of factors are exchanging more and more music files using popular P2P sharing technologies, such as Kazaa, e-Mule or Gnutella. If from one side this fact is important and positive, from the other side it is driving to a growth in the number of piracy situations, related to the violation of the authors copyright. Super distribution is from far the most popular electronic business model on the Internet and the World Wide Web. This is especially true when digital formatted content, such as music, videos or even books are considered. What are the main reasons for these facts? - Because it works. This paper proposes an approach to address such IPR issues trough the usage of an open DRM architecture.
