Title: Digital Rights Management and the Pricing of Digital Products
Authors: Park, Yooki - University of California, Berkeley

Issue Date: 2004
Series/Report no.: NET Institute Working Paper;04-09
Abstract: Digital products such as movies, music and computer software are protected both by self-help measures such as encryption and copy controls, and by the legal right to prevent copying. We explore how digital rights management and other technical protections affect the pricing of content, and consequently, why content users, content vendors, and antitrust authorities might have different views on what technical capabilities should be deployed. We discuss the potential for collusion through technology.
