DMDsecure offers services based on Digital Rights Management to enable content owners and distributors in marketing, selling and delivering their products over the Internet.
DMDsecure provides technical solutions using several leading technologies to distribute digital content. With these (now WMA and Adobe) proven DRM technologies we increase the barriers for consumers to copy and distribute music files without the permission of the content owner. At the same time DMDsecure offers online outlets an operating platform, implementation, tools and services to shift their business model to a d-commerce (digital-commerce) model. Based on our Digital Media Distribution platform DMDsecure opens up new and previously impossible revenue streams. By adding value through providing marketing tools on top of DRM, we will lower the barriers for consumers to consume content in exchange for any form of transaction. We see transaction models in bringing consumers to a site, collecting marketing information from the consumer, loyalty programs and finally money transactions. Our clients are the content owners as well as the online outlets. We started our operations in the music industry and have added the publishing industry. We are a member of the EdiMA( http://www.edima.org/) which is a European organisation for companies involved with the online distribution of content
