Default Microsoft's DRM to be Strengthened for Mobile Use

http://www.pcworld.com/resource/article/0,aid,125323,pg,1,RSS,RSS,00.asp

"With ever more songs, pictures, and video clips being sent over the airwaves to mobile phones, Microsoft plans to beef up its investment in digital rights management (DRM) technologies to help protect copyrighted material, the company said Wednesday on the opening day of CTIA Wireless 2006 in Las Vegas. Microsoft provided no financial details, saying only that the investments will be "significant." It plans to extend its Windows Media Digital Rights Management software to support new types of wireless services, it said. The company said it was responding to demands from its wireless partners who want new ways to deliver content protected by copyright. The more than 800 million mobile handsets sold worldwide each year represent a largely untapped market for digital entertainment, representatives said."

It's good to hear that they are investing more into DRM solutions for mobile devices. Personally, I haven't had any problems. Then again, I usually burn and re-rip any DRM content that I purchase. Perhaps I won't need to do these steps in the future. That would be nice.
