Is DRM Flawed? BuyDRM Investigates at 22 March CPS EU

While consumer DRM has been a mainstay in content protection since the early days of the streaming industry, preventing piracy of premium studio content remains a challenge today.

At the March 22 Content Protection Summit Europe event, Gabe Elton, director of sales for BuyDRM, will explore whether the capabilities of DRM have matured with age, how fragmented the industry is, and why the lack of a centralised platform to “lock down” creates opportunity zones for pirates, in the presentation “Is DRM Flawed? Closing the Gaps in Your Content Protection Strategies.”

The mantra “every screen and every device” may be a rallying cry for marketers in almost every segment of the video industry, some of those screens and devices are much more secure than others. In his presentation, Elton will explore some of the past flaws in DRM, how your current approach to DRM might be flawed, and how improvements in DRM technology combined with watermarking can help close the gaps in your content protection strategy.

“You should walk away from this presentation with a better understanding of how to approach DRM in a way that provides the utmost security for your video content and how recent technological advancements in this space will aid in that endeavour,” Elton said.

The eighth annual Content Protection Summit Europe event is produced by MESA in association with the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), and presented by Convergent Risks, with sponsorship by archTIS, NAGRA, Signiant, and BuyDRM. To register for the event, click here.
