A good example of a digital rights management (DRM) effort - focused on mobile devices - is the DRM specification defined by the Open Media Alliance, called the OMA DRM. The OMA develops specifications for interoperability of portable digital media applications. The OMA DRM is not a complete DRM, but is an interoperability framework that supports multiple DRM systems. Another group working on security and rights management for devices that can store and distribute digital media is the Trusted Computer Group.
