A Little Bit of the Old UltraViolet

A Little Bit of the Old UltraViolet

You would think Darwin’s process of natural selection would apply to digital rights management (DRM) schemes. With AACS, Adept, FairPlay, Marlin, WMA and others, you would think that content creators would want fewer DRM schemes, so that their content would be more consumer friendly and result in higher sales. But those (republican?) concepts of free enterprise and innovation decree that the market needs one more DRM scheme to rule them all – DECE’s UltraViolet.

In the April/May issue of Streaming Media Magazine, Tim Siglin asks if DECE finally gets DRM right, as well as who has signed-on and who has not.

What comes after television, the internet and mobile is what has been commonly referred to as the fourth screen. But what is the deal with all these screens? What are they, why are they important and what do we as producers, designers, technologists and marketers need to know?

The panel was: Steve Ronson, EVP, AETN; Lance Podell, CEO, NextNewNetworks; Dana Spiegel, VP of Application Strategy and Development, Cathedral Partners; Michael Kogon, Founder and CEO, Definition 6. Denise Oliver, Co-Founder, ShortFormTV was the moderator.

It’s not that SobelMedia needed the extra publicity, it’s just that I like the promo that creativebubble did.
