DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 12 (UPI) -- An open-standard OMA DRM technology has been added to Motricity's wireless delivery system to protect licensed digital content.
Motricity will use the OMA DRM 2.0 tool developed by SafeNet to protect some 600,000 titles that will be made available to subscribers later this year.
"Motricity will launch video and full-track music services this year with several of our off-net media and mobile network operator customers," said Vice President Brian Dally. "We will rely on SafeNet's OMA-compliant DRM technologies to provide piece of mind to entertainment companies and content providers."
OMA DRM 2.0 is an open-standards solution that has been under development for the past three years by more than 300 companies. The goal of the program is a system by which content subscribers can send files to friends while ensuring that the record labels and other copyright holders get their cut.
