I don’t think the Enterprise has really woken up to DRM yet

DRM is beginning to make an entrance into the Enterprise, and whilst at one level the technologies sound attractive I’m not sure the longer term, deeper consequences are all that palatable. I do wonder what the lawyers will think (because a Judge is unlikely to be impressed by arbitrary restrictions imposed by some DRM system) and of course from a long term records perspective DRM is completely toxic.

James Governor’s MonkChips: digital lard for the enterprise: DRM meets document formats: “What I am saying is that DRM creates new escrow challenges, and organisations should know exactly what they are using it for, and why, and what risks they are mitigating, before embarking on an enterprise DRM strategy.”
