High Level Group on Digital Rights Management : Final Report March-July 2004

jeudi 16 décembre 2004, par Collecte CND R.L

As part of the progress in the implementation of the eEurope 2005 Action Plan, the Commission committed to establish a High Level Group (HLG) on Digital Rights Management (DRM) issues1. The HLG was established in March 2004. The Group comprised participants2 representing the e-content value chain, including content providers, authors and rightsholders organisations, publishers and broadcasters, operators (mobile, fixed), equipment manufacturers, DRM solutions providers, research and consumers.

The HLG met twice, on the 31st of March and 8th of July 2004 under the chairmanship of Commissioner Liikanen and with the participation of several Commission services. Four working level meetings were held to prepare the HLG report. On 31st of March the HLG agreed to identify the challenges related to DRM, to consolidate the views of the various parts of the value chain on DRM related issues and identify the possible ways forward. The HLG agreed to focus on the following :

o Interoperability requirements, including standardisation developments, for DRM to meet users’ expectations

o Acceptance and trust by users with particular emphasis on security and privacy

o Migration towards legitimate services

o The impact of DRM on existing rights management approaches, in particular the application of levies

o Assessment of the applications of DRM on the European markets as of today (success stories, constraints, prospects)

The final report presented on 8 July reflects a consensus on basic principles and recommendations for future actions. It covers three aspects :

o DRM and Interoperability

o Private copying levies and DRM

o Migration to legitimate services.
