IBM broadens digital rights management software

IDG.net reports that on Monday, IBM will release version 2 of its EMMS digital rights management software, "which includes the ability to protect digital content of any file type, company officials said.

EMMS 2 is the evolution of EMMS (Electronic Media Management System), software designed for electronic media distribution that originally protected music files. For instance, with the previous version of EMMS, a company had the ability to make a song downloadable and then automatically expire after the user played it a specified number of times."
