Spotify with DRM

follow

When you buy a DVD, it's perfectly legal for you to make a copy of it for your own use. This is the gist of the fair use doctrine in copyright law -- there are certain situations that negate copyright protection in favor of the content user, including copying protected material for personal use and copying anything in the public domain for any use. Most digital rights management schemes cannot take fair use into account, because a computer program cannot make subjective decisions.

What is DRM

DRM (also known as Digital Rights Management) is an anti-piracy technology adopted by digital copyright owners to restrict the use of their digital materials and works, including software, movies, music, etc by others. The particular purpose of DRM is to prevent people from accessing, duplicating, and sharing copyrighted digital files in ways that the owners don't like them to. But ironically, DRM, the way to protect the right of copyright owners, actually infringes the users' right on fair use of these digital contents in the mean time.

How it works

A common DRM encryption scheme provides an encryption key that works forever. In this case, the key must be tied to the ID number of the user's machine. The key will only decode the file when it's accessed from the computer it was originally installed on. Otherwise, the user could simply forward the key along with the encrypted software to everyone he knows.

Some products, like those protected by Macrovision SafeCast or Microsoft Product Activation, use a Web-based permission scheme to prevent illegal use of the content.

A less common DRM method is the digital watermark. The FCC is trying to require a "broadcast flag" that lets a digital video recorder know if it's allowed to record a program or not. The flag is a piece of code sent out with a digital video signal.

The DRM-provider Macrovision used an interesting approach in one of its recent DVD-protection products. Instead of making a DVD uncopyable, Macrovision RipGuard exploits glitches in DVD ripping software to prevent copying.

Streaming Music Service with DRM

Let us take an example, if Lucy subscribes the online streaming music service, she can listen to, and play and download Lauryn Hill's "Everything is Everything." Her subscription level entitles her to five downloads per month. However she is not allowed to burn "Everything is Everything." to CD, or copy them to her friend and so on.

Its DRM restrictions may prevent you from sharing a copy of the songs downloaded even you have already been a subscriber.
