Welcome to The DRM Blog! 

The_DRM_Blog_Logo.jpgMy name is Christopher Levy and I am the founder and CEO of BuyDRM.  You might have heard me speak on DRM or read an article I wrote on LinkedIn.com or StreamingMedia.com about Digital Rights Management. As a recognized expert on DRM technologies, I have been very vocal over the years in their successful use in premium video deployments. 

Recently, my Marketing Director at BuyDRM suggested we bring the DRM Blog back online as a way to communicate up-to-date information about DRM and the DRM industry at large.

While I will not always be the one writing the articles, my BuyDRM Sales and Marketing team will be helping me produce and publish informative and current posts about the DRM marketplace and ways to effectively use the technology. My staff is committed to keeping the information current and timely to help guide you through the process of formulating a DRM strategy and obtaining a DRM partner and vendor. 

We think that our knowledgebase will help you avoid common pitfalls when creating your DRM strategy. We will bring nearly 15 years of success stories deploying DRM for major media and tech brands to the table and to your benefit.  So HERE WE GO!

DRM – What is Your Multi-DRM Strategy?

The first major company to adopt a single DRM strategy was Microsoft in 2000 with their Digital Media Broaapi_round8_copy.pngdcast Manager for Netshow which later became the Windows Media Rights Manager platform.  The following year, in 2001, Apple introduced their FairPlay DRM technology.  In 2007, six years after the founding of BuyDRM, Microsoft introduced PlayReady.  Not to be outdone, shortly thereafter, Adobe introduced their Adobe Access DRM technology, now called Adobe Primetime.  In 2010 Google acquired Widevine Technologies, formed in 1999,  even further complicating a single DRM strategy. 

While each of these technologies has its own strengths, this has created a need for broadcasters, OTT operators, CDN’s, universities, and other industries looking to protect their IP and content from piracy, to find a single solution DRM provider.

Since the worldwide web and browsers are moving away from plug-ins, users attempting to view protected content in Chrome must be delivered Widevine licenses; those viewing in IE or Edge must be delivered PlayReady licenses; and those in Safari – Fairplay.  Confused?  Don’t be.

With these autonomous mega corporations like Microsoft, Apple and Google, who march to the beat of their own drums, it is more important than ever to procure a Multi-DRM strategy that can seamlessly deliver protected content under any situation, regardless of the browser or playback platform being used.
