ABSTRACT
The article offers information on mobile digital rights management. Standards under the Open Mobile Alliance are abandoned as companies pursue other digital rights management solutions creating a fragmented industry. The article also discusses Steve Jobs' push to make music available without restriction and protecting digital music distribution revenues, Microsoft's PlayReady, the OMA DRM 2.0 standard, Marlin, and the Darwinian struggle to see what distribution model will survive.
