Create techniques for preserving the usefulness of Digital Rights associated with digital objects. Examination of techniques how to deal with DRM protected digital objects and identification of best practices for preserving the usefulness of their associated Digital Rights.

Description of work and role of partners

Task 3110 Review of DRM use and preservation

Review the work that has been done in consortium members and beyond into DRM requirements and preservation. For example, the CASPAR project developed and tested tools which allowed one to deal with a changing legislative base on which to determine the rights associated with the aid digital object, and also to accommodate a multiplicity of legal systems. These capabilities are needed both in the current European environment and also to deal with digital rights created right now but which need to be honoured in the future in a different legal environment and with different methods of encoding the digital rights.

Furthermore this task will work out why long term preservation of DRM protected material is a current and important challenge.

Task 3120 Digital Rights research

In this task we compare the implementations of different digital rights tools and evaluate them in a common testing environments.by building up a classification that shows, which tools are well suited for digital preservation and which are not. A number of important questions will be identified and a research map will be produced.

List of deliverables
