Digital Rights Management (DRM) enforces the rights of copyright holders and enforces their business models. This imposes restrictions on the way users handle content. These restrictions apply specifically in networked environments. Authorized Domain (AD) DRM concepts remove, or at least reduce, several of these restrictions to a large extent, while at the same time taking into account the content providers’ need to limit the proliferation of content. In this paper we describe the design and operation of an Authorized Domain system, which we call the Personal Entertainment Domain (PED).
