Content Protection Without DRM
“DRM (Digital Rights Management) has traditionally been thought of as a tool to enforce copyright. As such, it has failed spectacularly on several occasions. Practically every DRM solution with wide enough deployment for people to care was defeated within a short period of time.
“In this article, we propose alternative business models which would provide the participating parties with the right incentives to do what other participants expect them to do, irrespectively whether or not copyright is enforced. The proposed business models are based on several already successful business practices, which encourage creativity without relying on copyright protection.”
