Antonius Cahya Prihandoko, Bruce Litow, Hossein Ghodosi
Abstract. Digital Right Management (DRM) is a digital content providers’ weapon to protect their intellectual property rights. The use of DRM has been rising in recent years. However, though digital technologies have changed enormously in recent decades, many existing DRM technologies only provide partial solutions to an immense problem and thus are still not effective at combating piracy. Additionally, they fail to maintain fair use and protect users’ privacy. This paper provides a literature review on the current state of DRM research and a major problem for the DRM system.
Keywords: Digital rights management; rights protection; piracy; fair use; user’s privacy; cryptography; digital watermarking
