Evolving and controlling digital content usage. Capgemini’s Jude Umeh provides a 360-degree view of the different stakeholder perspectives of DRM, examining the history, current practice and future trends in the management of intellectual property rights.
The rapid advances in digital technology have meant that digitised content is now readily available to most people. However content owners and commercial stakeholders face a constant battle to protect their intellectual property and commercial rights.
Jude Umeh, a certified Technical Architect and member of the Sector Consulting Group in Capgemini’s global Telecom, Media & Entertainment (TME) community, provides a 360-degree view of the different stakeholder perspectives, examining the history, current practice and future trends in the management of intellectual property rights.
In addition the book looks at the technology and architecture of digital rights management as well as other complementary technology and practices that can help make it more effective in achieving the difficult task of controlling a particularly troublesome element of the cultural evolution bought about by the internet.Â
It is aimed at a very wide audience from anyone involved in technology and security through to law and media, the performing arts and financial services. Chapters include an explanation of what DRM is, its history and background, the different types of DRM technology and standards, the entertainment industry, and the future of DRM.Â
