    Why is DRM important to the BBC? There are three simple reasons for this, each of which becomes even more important when we're talking about the digital world - be it broadcasting or broadband. The first point is one of ownership. The rights structure of much of our content is incredibly complex. We quite often buy-in rights, for sports or for feature films. Sometimes our production partners and t... View full abstract»
