DRM must evolve to satisfy needs of both content owners and end users or face abandonment, says Arthur D. Little

Arthur D. Little's new report, "Untying the Gordian Knot", examines the current state of play in digital rights management (DRM) and concludes that systems must evolve to deliver both acceptable content protection for owners and maximum interoperability for users, otherwise DRM may be abandoned altogether.

While DRM has been used since the early days of digital content distribution, it has long been a source of controversy, with complex proprietary systems creating integration headaches for manufacturers and distributors, and preventing end users from legitimately sharing content across different devices and platforms.  The rise of digital piracy can even be part-blamed on the inflexibility of traditional DRM systems, with users resorting to file sharing as not only the cheapest, but also easiest way of accessing and sharing content.

Central and Eastern European telecom operators take bold approach in broadband market and beyond, Arthur D. Little finds

  • While DSL has been the dominant fixed broadband technology in the EU, the CEE experience has confirmed that other technologies, such as wifi, LAN, and FTTx, may better fit local markets
