BT Makes First Foray into Digital Rights Management

London -- U.K. phone and Internet service provider BT this week
unveiled a new "rich media" platform that will allow businesses to
distribute multimedia content protected by BT's new digital rights
management technology. The service is the company's first foray into
digital rights management, a field currently dominated by competitors
including Microsoft, RealNetworks, Apple and Sony. BT partnered with
RealNetworks on the new platform, but said it would only offer that
company's publishing and content management tools to customers. "The
digital rights element is in no way intended to restrict distribution -
- in fact, quite the opposite," said BT's Andy Brown. "The software is
downloaded at no extra charge, and encourages users to share digital
files with flexible billing options, including those linked to the end
user's BT account."
