The ACM Workshop on Digital Rights Management is an international forum that serves as an interdisplinary bridge between areas that can be applied to solving the problem of Intellectual Property protection of digital content. These include: cryptography, software and computer systems design, trusted computing, information and signal processing, intellectual property law, policy-making, as well as business analysis and economics. Its purpose is to bring together researchers from the above fields for a full day of formal talks and informal discussions, covering new results that will spur new investigations regarding the foundations and practices of DRM.
This year's workshop, the eighth in the series, continues this tradition. As in the previous editions, it is sponsored by ACM SIGSAC and is held in conjunction with the ACM Conference in Computer and Communications Security (CCS).
