There is growing need by owners, developers and consumers of digital products for a metadata platform to create commercial application and content profiles of digital products for the purposes of digital rights management (DRM) and digital product trading. To meet this demand a metadata-based digital management platform is needed to support both the production and consumption life cycles of digital products. This involves the creation, definition, use and relevant reporting of metadata for the control and administration of ‘point-of-use’-based DRM, as well as the associated legal and commercial requirements of such a service. Developing and implementing a metadata digital management platform must be based on a global infrastructure and the needs of Intellectual Property Rights governance over digital products. In all sectors, a metadata-based digital management platform is required to adequately deal with and provide for security, authentication, identification, permissions, data storage, metadata ownership, digital products ownership and liability responsibility, business models, legislation, taxation, sovereignty, interoperability, multilingual interfaces, transaction types, biometrics, continuity of service, off-line functionality, licensing models, pricing models, application metrics for technical support and e-commerce.Journal of Digital Asset Management (2009) 5, 75–82. doi:10.1057/dam.2008.54
