ContentGuard, Inc. and Sandlot Corporation announced a strategic alliance to offer content owners combined DRM and subscription management technology and services. The two companies will integrate ContentGuard’s DRM technology and services, RightsEdge, with Sandlot’s subscription management product, EclipseNet. The integrated solution will allow content owners to maximize revenue potential from their digital offerings via subscription-based business models. It will also enable content owners to manage the delivery and subscription process for digital content, including eBooks, music and video, just as effectively as they do for paper newspapers and magazines. ContentGuard’s DRM solutions incorporate the eXtensible rights Markup Language (XrML), a universal method for specifying rights and conditions associated with the use and protection of digital content as part of the DRM process. This XrML component enables content owners and partners to adopt a broad range of business models and easily expand their digital content business as the market grows.,
