Microsoft unveils Windows Rights Management Services

Microsoft has released Windows Rights Management Services (RMS), an add-on to Windows Server 2003 that lets organisations add digital rights protection to information such as documents and email. Windows RMS is the last of three parts that organisations will need to set and enforce rules on information usage. Users can restrict access, copying, forwarding and printing of documents and emails, for example.

Windows RMS is envisioned as a platform for enterprise digital rights management, meaning any software vendor can create applications to work with the technology. Microsoft says it is in talks with other software makers for expanded support of Windows RMS. For now though, the package works only with Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Windows RMS costs $US37 per client-access license. It runs only on Win Server 2003 Standard Edition, Datacentre Edition and Web Edition, Microsoft said. The Windows Rights Management Client is available as a free download.
