Microsoft to update Windows Media DRM

Posted on Wednesday, August 30 2006 @ 15:15 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Last week a program called FairUse4WM appeared on the web, enabling users to strip DRM from Windows Media 10 and 11 media files. In response, Microsoft confirmed yesterday that it will update Windows Media DRM to address the circumvention.
"Microsoft has long stated that no DRM system is impervious to circumvention--a position our content partners are aware of as well," the company said in a statement. "That is why we designed the Windows Media DRM system to be renewable, so that if such events occur the system can be refreshed to address them."
