  • Patent number: 10120983
    Abstract: A digital rights management (DRM) scheme enables a user having a valid license to digital content to create one or more copies of the content. The number of copies is limited by the DRM scheme. However, if the user is not connected or connectable to the content provider or licensing party when additional copies are desired, the user is permitted to create one or more additional copies without deleting or disabling other copies even though the additional copies exceed the number otherwise permitted by the DRM scheme. The number of such “float” copies may be limited. Rights to such additional copies may be withdrawn during a subsequent connection session between the user and the content provider.

  • Publication number: 20080148363
    Abstract: A digital rights management (DRM) system allows a user to purchase, license or otherwise obtain digital content and to play the content on a first device. An application operative on the device implements DRM rules that allow the user to share the content with other devices so long as a total number of simultaneously accessible copies is below a preset limit. The application updates a local registry of content and devices enabled to play the content. The local registry is synchronized with a registry at the content provider when the device is on-line.

  • Publication number: 20080148362
    Abstract: A digital rights management (DRM) system allows for digital data to be delivered to a user, and user rights to be stored by a locker service by the content provider. The rights may be stored in the locker service by request of the user. If the content is then lost, corrupted, or otherwise unavailable or unusable by the user, or in other appropriate circumstances, the user may contact the locker service and obtain authorization to re-access (e.g., download) another copy of the content. The system may verify user compliance with the DRM scheme prior to authorizing re-provisioning of the content.
