Digital rights management is used to protect copyrighted content from unauthorized use. However, it still remains challenging to strike a balance between content sharing and rights management. Marlin is developing open standards for interoperable DRM technology. The Octopus and NEMO frameworks in Marlin are the underlying technologies to realize seamless content sharing and rights management to support a wide variety of business models. We demonstrate the use of Octopus and NEMO in a practical manner by means of Marlin Broadband Network Services (MBNS) and Marlin Shared Domain (MSD). Marlin Simple Secure Streaming (MS3) is designed for protecting streaming content in a simple and efficient manner. We show the industrial adoption of Marlin as the first step toward creating an open and interoperable DRM ecosystem through example deployments of Marlin technology in the market.
