Nokia adds PlayReady to DRM lineup

Finnish vendor Nokia has added support for Microsoft’s PlayReady digital rights management (DRM) technology to its S60 and Series 40 device platforms.

The Finnish company claims that by supporting PlayReady it will be easier for content owners and service providers “to offer premium digital content and enable more flexible business models, such as renting content or accessing it offline”.

While for consumers, PlayReady “brings flexible ways to manage their digital content between online, home and mobile devices”. For example, a consumer could purchase content directly from their Nokia device and then transfer the content to other designated devices, such as PCs or mobile devices.

So it’s just like using unprotected media files but even more flexible, apparently
