SECURE LICENSE MANAGEMENT - Management of Digital Object Licenses in a DRM Environment

Carlos Serrão, Miguel Dias, Jaime Delgado

Abstract

In the digital world protecting digital intellectual property is proving to be a hard task. Not only it is complex to provide robust and reliable mechanisms to prevent unauthorized content copying and utilization, but also it is complex to provide a mechanism for specifying and enforcing how content can and will be used. Rights expression languages allow content providers and distributors to syntactically and semantically to express a set of rights that are associated to a digital object. In this paper we will provide the definition and description of the digital object license granting rights life cycle management and processes necessary to secure the license throughout this entire life cycle.
